COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A heavy strong stout brewed with coffee, brown sugar and oats. With its powerful quality and morning ingredients it seems parallel to a solid dawn session at Blacks. An inside connection to boutique roasted fare trade beans we were granted the opportunity to make this exceptional brew.

16oz Bottle It was for sale at the Beer and Wine store for $5.99. I’d never heard of this brewery or the beer so I said, "What the heck. Why not?" On the Pour: It was very opaque. I could see, right from the start, that it was WAY too over-filtered (my pet peeve). The head was only light khaki. The color you’d expect from a pale beer. Aroma: Coffee and some lightly roasted grains. That’s it. Flavor: The mouthfeel was alright. More than I thought it would be but still not great from what I expect from a stout. The coffee was the overwhelming flavor. behind that was some roasted malt. But mostly coffee. BUT. And this is a big ’But’. When the canister of coffee tells you to mix 5 tbsp of coffee to 5 cups of water, but instead you mix 2 tbsp of coffee to 5 cups of water… That is the strength of coffee that I’m getting. It’s the only flavor but it’s very faint. I’m not impressed AT ALL. This was not a good first impression of this brewery. And I probably will not sample any of their other beers if I come across them.

TXBadger (2686) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 7, 2016
Pours an opaque dark brown color with khaki colored head. Burnt grain, and a sugary sweetness on the nose, weird aroma; same for the palate. The malt almost tastes smoked or burnt. Very off flavors.

Itzjerm (2528) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - JUN 16, 2016
At brewery. One of the worst coffee stouts I have ever had. Taste like Greene I roasted coffee beans. Astringent and gross aroma is the same. Nice head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JStax (5841) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 30, 2016
Bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a near black with a khaki head of foam. Moderate coffee comes through in the aroma with supporting chocolate and a subtle toffee. Sweet and a bit roasty. Thicker mouthfeel. Big bodied and moderate carbonation.

luttonm (5453) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 28, 2016
Collective on Tap, Woodinville. Creamy brown-black with great cream head. Relatively mild roasty malt aroma, grainy sweet malt body. Barrel-like creamy alcohol, mellow, sweet. Pretty tasty and smooth.

tmoreau (4021) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2016
Shared 1 pint .9 oz. bottle poured to snifters, showing a ruby highlighted, black brown hue, with a presentable layer of brownish tan head foam, and spots of lacing. The nose was green peppers and roasted coffee. Medium bodied, with soft carbonation, the taste was dry & roasted, with a hint of fels naptha-like soapiness, and tar & earthy bitterness. Somewhat abrasive, and didn’t finish the sampler amount.

Idiosynkrasie (6981) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 26, 2016
500ml bottle. Quasi black colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, tan head. Chocolately, dark malty aroma, hints of coffee, a touch of vanilla, fruity hints of blue grapes. Taste is moderately sweet, chocolately dark malty, hints of coffee, fruity notes of dark berries, blue grapes, dry overtones of corresponding fruit parings. Relatively light, more sessionable than kind of a sipper.
