COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The perfect morning night capper. The richest of stout, creme, and coffee that could ever grace the guidelines of beer. Toast, roast, and chocolate notes infused with fresh coffee and finishing with a soft creme mouth feel.

Had this on tap at Crunchys in east lansing. Poured black with a small head. Smell was coffee, with some cream added. Taste was much the same, big and rich, super smooth. This is a sweeter stout and I thought it would be too much after awhile, but I finished the mug no problem. my buddy had founders breakfast, and I have to say that side by side, I think I know the winner.

Huge thanks to my man Jeff for hooking me up with this one. Everything I have ever wanted in a coffee beer. Pours a deep, dark, black. Lacing looks like cream, and it looks exactly like a cup of coffee in my glass. Aroma is big and bold, all coffee and cream, with a hint of roasted grain and a touch of chocolate. Flavor is exactly the same: dark strong coffee and cream, a bit of chocolate, burnt grains and malt. Thick and creamy on the palate. This is exactly how I like my coffee stouts. Delicious.

Big thanks to hopsleeroy for sharing some of this growler! Pours a dark black color with a very light beige head. SMell is robust, rich, oily coffee beans and chocolate. Taste is slightly creamy, and lots of very rich and oily roasted coffee beans. Medium body with light carbonation, that could be somewhat due to it having been growlered. Definitely one of the better coffee beers out there, I thought.

Thanks to Northernbrews for hooking us up with the Shorts! Pours very dark and thick. Aroma is STRONG coffee. Maybe the strongest coffee smell I’ve had in a beer, with the exception of Coffee Bender. Flavor is also strong on the coffee with a good sweetness to balance things. This is an exceptional coffee stout, and possibly the best I have had.

Draft. Pours a black body with a tan coffee head. Dark roasty coffee up front, creamy with roasted malt, sweet unrefined sugars. Some bitter chocolate hints of roasty coffee and a hint of smoke.

Growler shared by GodOfThunder. Pours pitch black with light brown head. Big roasted coffee aroma with dark chocolate. Bitter coffee and sweet chocolate flavors blend nicely. Full creamy body with mild carbonation. Very good.

Tap at the brewery. Pitch black pour. Rich, decadent espresso aroma with dark chocolate, a hint of molasses and faint piny hops. Dark chocolate and rich dark roast coffee flavor with a little bit of roasty, piny, hops and a hint of molasses. Full, creamy body.

Growler, courtesy GodOfThunder via northernbrews. The body is virtually pitch black at the center with traces of mahogany at the far edges. A small, foamy, mocha colored head crowns the surface. Thin sheets of lacing slowly break apart and stick as scattered spots. The aroma shows bold, fresh, darkly roasted coffee beans over a base of bittersweet dark chocolate and smooth, creamy mocha malts. Earthy hops enhance the coffee roast, each working in unison to counter the underlying creamy chocolate sweetness. Flavors are very much coffee forward, decadent roast hitting first, followed by robust bitter chocolate and notes of mocha cream. Substantial and creamy, the body leaves lingering coffee flavors behind. This stuff is as delicious as it is easy going. I could probably kill the whole growler by myself in a day’s time.

Growler... GSRARO Throwdown... Pours pitch black with a small, creamy, light brown head. Leaves a tan, oily coating around the glass as it recedes. Smells like a blend of coffee grounds and milk chocolate – mocha. Full-bodied with a slick mouthfeel and lively carbonation. The flavor is chock full of chocolate and even heavier on the coffee grounds. A touch too sweet... the residual sugars far outlast any bitter, tannic notes. Sweet, mocha finish... more coffee-forward than chocolaty. Thanks to GodOfThunder for providing this beer!

Growler. My last beer at the throwdown. Big ass coffee nose, with touches of chocolate. Even bigger coffee flavor, semi-sweet thankfully, not the dry thin coffee palate of many coffee stouts. Just alot of mocha chocolate coffee goodness.
