Great beer on tap at local brewery pizza boy.
Pours jet black with a little amber shining through the edges.
Smells of your favorite coffee shop.
The taste hits you bigtime with strong coffee and dark roasted malts.
Mouthfeel is thick and silky. the coffee flavor lingers long after you swallow.
One of the best stouts I have had.

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.

Growler pour. Black pour with tan head. Huge roasted coffee aroma. Flavor is dominated my super roasted coffee. Wish I could substitute this for my morning coffee.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler... Motor oil-black with a small, creamy, beige head. Good retention. The aroma is a blend of peat smoke, dark-roast coffee grounds and burnt malts. Full-bodied with a sticky mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. Sweeter than the base beer, this treatment provides a mixture of brownies, deeply-roasted coffee beans, fudge and charcoal. Lengthy, scorched, bittersweet, mocha finish. Growler courtesy of biggsbowler!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours thick dark black coffee with a big creamy dark cocoa colored head. Aroma brings the coffee big in the nose with roasted malts and dark cacao. Flavors are rich with big coffee and chocolate on a creamy thick but not overbearing body. The coffee is so smooth and not bitter at all, blended perfectly on every sense.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
black with thin ring. Coffee rules nose, huge after Earl with some ash, faintly green. Front palate is all coffee, seamless transition into a chocolate mid palate, light grinds and bitterness through the full, sweet decadent end. Best coffee beer Iíve had in years.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Growler from the brewery. Jet black with a 1 finger tan head. Aroma is delicious coffee grounds with a hint of chocolate. Taste is coffee forward with a hint of chocolate. Caramel finish as the beer warms. Light fudge and marshmallow notes poke their head out. Bitterness from the coffee perfectly balanced by the sweetness of chocolate and caramel. Solid thick mouthfeel. Slightly sticky and surprisingly strong carbonation. Really excellent.

Growler poured into a wine-style tasting glass. Pours black with some brown hues and a tan head. Aroma has huge amazing notes of roast and coffee, along with some caramel and chocolate. On the taste, big amazing roast and coffee notes again, with caramel, chocolate, and espresso. Full body with a semi-dry finish, very smooth. The coffee is really well done in this one.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
I picked up a number of 32oz growlers of this at Pizza Boy. I donít typically rave, but about this, I need to. First thing you notice when you crack the growler is the wonderful inviting aroma of coffee, not overly roasted or overly gritty, but wonderful, fragrant, sweet coffee. Other aromas of milk chocolate, toast, molasses, mocha, caramel, a bit of vanilla bean. When you finally pour it in the glass, itís an opaque black, oily, with some sudsy brown head. Flavors follow suit, roasted malt, molasses, a little licorice, some toast, brown sugar, caramel, a little raisin, pencil lead and really high end coffee. Roasty, coffee finish. Incredibly drinkable. Goes down like itís 6%, not 11. One of the best beers I can remember having. Sensational in the truest sense of the word.
