On tap at at Pizza Boy. Pours a dark chocolatey black color with a slight medium brown head. Aromas of black coffee and light chocolate. Some leather. The taste is sweet but with a black coffee bitterness. The beer is thick and viscous. Very good coffee stout.

A - Pours jet black with a nice one finger tall tan head, dissipating down to a thin film, leaving spotty trails of lace down parts of the glass.
S - Smells of rich fresh roasted coffee, chocolate, vanilla, dark roasted malt and some light smoke. Really awesome nose. The coffee is front and center from start to finish, no doubt what you are about to consume.
T - Starts off with a TON of fresh roasted coffee grounds slowly giving way to hints of vanilla, bittersweet chocolate, light smokiness and plenty of dark roasted malt. Not overly sweet with a good bit of bitterness from all that coffee. Finish is fairly roasty with some light alcohol burn, leaving the palate dried long after consumption.
M - Heavy body with moderate carbonation. Smooth, roasty feel from start to finish. The booze is hidden very well, only coming out at the end of each sip.
O - This is one awesome coffee stout. I love Little Amps coffee so this is a win win for me. This may be Pizza Boys best beer to date. If you have a chance to try this one I suggest you do, really awesome stuff.

1L growler. Pours a clear dark brown, almost black, body with a small tight bubbled dark brown head. The nose is just full-on coffee goodness, smells more like spent coffee grounds than it does beer. Intense fresh roasted coffee over a roasty malt base. Minimal alcohol notes given the ABV. The flavor i just as intense on the coffee as the aroma. Rich and full of fresh roasted coffee with a nice bitterness from both the malt and the coffee. A little more alcohol in the flavor than the aroma let on, but not overly noticeable. Finishes with a heavy roastiness before the coffee takes over. Medium bodied with soft gentle carbonation. Really nice coffee beer, but then again, Iím a huge sucker for coffee beers. One of the most intensely coffee forward beers Iíve ever had.

Growler from the brewery. Perfect coffee stout, total balance. Deep black with a quickly dissipating tan head. Aromas of mainly medium roast coffee. The taste is coffee, fudge, some sweetness maybe caramel, bitter notes as well. Medium mouthfeel with crisp bitter notes on the back end. Excellent coffee stout all around. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Growler. Deep, dark brown color that flirts with black in color. Dark khaki head sits on top. Aroma has blackberries, blueberries, chocolate, plenty of roast coffee, but there is some slight green pepper. Taste is roast coffee, chocolate, slightly smokey. Wow. Good shit. Pretty rich, hefty body. Glad to share this with some close friends.

32oz growler in a tulip. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts, dark chocolate, a little bit of dark fruits, and light dough. Flavor the same with a great blend and strong coffee. Smooth texture. A good beer.
