Some wet, charred wood. Taste is sugary coffee sweet. Some woody dryness. Plenty of coffee grind bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel. Medium body. Fine carbonation. Long, coffee bitterness on the finish, with a sugary sweetness remaining throughout.

Can picked up on a northern venture to NYC, pretty happy to find this in the cooler, can dated 1.23.17 #donut slayer..pours a medium to dark black with a nice 1 layer tan mocha head..the nose is spot on with very aromatic coffee, some cream n a trace of spice, perhaps nutmeg..mouthfeel follows suit with a silky smooth coating of the palate, 8 abv is hidden very well and this manages to achieve that pillowy smooth mouthfeel that is reminiscent of some barrel aged stouts..has qualities of an imperial stout, milk stout, and a robust porter..the sweetness is there for sure, but is not overwhelming the experience, one of the more enjoyable non barreled aged stouts I can recall having, definitely would pair nicely with a freshly prepared hot donut from a proper donut shop, worthy of the hype imho, worth the trouble seeking it out, abv makes itself known a bit down the road..if I could I would start many mornings with this one, everything works well

Can from Milk and Hops, Chelsea. Pours a dark brown, sheeting light brown head and lots of spotty lacing. Roasted coffee, chocolate, and done burnt malts. The flavor comes across as roasty and burnt up front, the chocolatey sweetness really comes out in the finish. Creates a nice, balanced flavor earlier that finishes clean, sweet, and a little sticky. Smooth and creamy. Soft carbonation. Really quite good.

Huhzubendah (3697) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 4, 2017
A huge thank you to Zac for this can. Dark brown, near black, body with in oily, silky, beige head. Huge chocolate, coffee, and roast aromas. Chocolate and coffee characters have about equal presence. Medium bodied and smooth on the palate. Mild bitterness and cocoa powder in the finish. Tasty.

Tallboy can picked up from Hop City Krog Market. Pours like a classic dark stout with a medium tan head and a little lacing. Aroma is dark malt with some coffee grounds and ash. Really nice flavor with some syrup sweetness and espresso bitterness. Pleasant stout.

dmac (6103) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 17, 2017
Tallboy can bonus from a BA IP trade at Kane. Poured a pitch black body with a smaller tight foamy beige head. Aroma of coffee, sweetener, burmt toast, green veggies, peppers, bad old coffee. Flavor is basically the same but aroma is actually better. Medium to fuller body with average carbonation and an average duration on the aftertaste.
