On tap at the Stone 17th Anniversary Party. A brown colored beer with a beige head. Mostly mocha on the nose, hop pellets too. There’s a nice bitterness in the flavor, both if the roasted malts and hoppy kind. Full body, quite dry, with a lasting finish. Pretty pleasant this one. 130817 brokensail (16601) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 8, 2013

A: The pour is a dark, dark brown color. Looks almost black in the glass, with a finger’s worth of khaki colored head.
S: Just an amazing coffee aroma to this beer. One of the best noses on a coffee beer that I’ve been fortunate to come across. Just a hint of roasted malt and sweet cream and sugar.
T: More of the same on the tongue. Some roast, bitter dark chocolate, and sweet milk chocolate. While those flavors are there, the coffee dominates and is really quite pleasant.
M: The body is medium, but appropriate for just a regular stout, medium carbonation.
D: A real pleasure to drink. Very easy to put this beer down. Too bad it’s draft only.
On tap at the brewery October 2014. Pours a dark brown with medium beige head that lasts. The aroma is strong roast coffee and cocoa. Medium body, dark chocolate, roast, bitter finish, very good.

Draught at Avery. Pours opaque with a large, creamy dark brown head, diminishing with fair lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (molasses, burnt grain, coffee), light hop (herbs), average yeast (leather) with notes of prune, tar, and charcoal. Full bodied, creamy texture, average carbonation, and a bitter finish. Long duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity, and heavy bitterness. Like drinking a really good cold coffee that just happens to also be a beer. Dogbrick (13389) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 30, 2010
