Moderate medium roast coffee nose. Black, medium tan head, good retention. Rich, robust earthy coffee flavor, sweet raisin accents. Coffee and mulberry finish. Creamy texture, medium body. Very well rounded and enjoyable, especially if you enjoy a good cup of coffee like I do.

650 ml. packaged Feb 14, 2014. Pours opaque ebony with a lasting disc of cream. Nose is potent espresso with a bit of cream and brown sugar, and unfortunately an occasional hint of scorched buttery popcorn. Tastes of quality dark roasted coffee, vanilla cream, dark chocolate and a bit of tart blackberry. Medium-heavy body is smooth with low-medium carbonation and has a good balance from a few directions.

You have to really enjoy coffee beers to like this. You also have to enjoy cream stouts. This is true to its word on both. It could have been so good because we had nothing but ipa’s all day and finally had this change, and it was sweetly wonderful. However, I still believe that as a tapped specimen it was precisely what it claimed and done well.

Tap from my friend @immadesigner. Dark brown/black pour. Flat from a growlette. Smells of cold coffee. Tastes of toasted malts, some milk esters, nice coffee. Don’t think I should be drinking this beer this late at night. Thanks to my friend Lacey. (4160)

Draft at Beer and Bacon. Pours dark brown with a fizzy light brown head. Tastes like burnt coffee, burnt toast, bittersweet chocolate, light syrup. Light body and low carbonation. Smells bad burnt toast and black coffee.

Bottle from Shawan Liquors. Pours black with an inch of khaki head. Leaves a little lacing in the glass. Has a nice roasted coffee nose. Has some solid lactose notes to blend with the coffee on the tongue. Finishes fairly clean. Finally a Starr Hill beer that doesn’t completely suck.
