On tap at the brewery. It poured a dark brown almost black color with a tan head. The aroma was of fresh-brewed coffee with some earthy notes. The taste was of coffee, cocoa and a hint of tobacco. The coffee was not overwhelming, a very balanced beer.

It’s quite possible to forget you are drinking a beer sometimes with this brew. An excellent night-cap or Christmas morning beer!

On tap at the brewpub. Pours black with a thick light tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, maple, and espresso. Flavor retains the coffee notes quite well, also with sweet and roasted malt. Great coffee presence! Yum!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sweet aroma, with notes of coffee and roasted malts. Appearance is a dark brown/red, slight head. The flavor has a chocolate coffe taste, with definite notes of lactose from the milk. This milk sugar adds a slightly sour taste to the overall sweetness. Mouthfeel is a little thick, and the finish is long lasting. Overall a decent stout

Draft… Pitch black ale with a mid-sized, wispy, beige head. Good retention. Espresso beans and cocoa nibs waft up from the glass. Medium to full-bodied with zesty carbonation. The flavor is mostly of finely ground deep-roast coffee... burnt, bitter, ashy and acrid. Crisp, charred, bitter finish.
