Sampled at the brewery. Pours a day brown with a grayish brown head that dissipates quickly and completely. Aroma is full of roasted malts with dark grains, roasted malts and a hint of chocolate backing. Flavor combines dark grains, roasted malts and coffee but is a touch thin.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of bnielsen13. Thanks Brad! Black appearance with a dark brown head that dissipates pretty quickly. Big dark chocolate, roasty coffee, light vanilla, dessert-like aroma. Somewhat bitter, dark roasty coffee, dark milk chocolate, rich oatmeal malty flavor with some of the coffee bitterness on the finish. A little thin.

growler courtesy of justn pours dark brown, off-white head with light golden lacing. aroma of coffee, roasted malts and hints of hops flavor, roasted malts, mild coffee, dark roast, light and thin palate with a coffee/oat finish. Nice beer stout for only 5%, coffee is not as forward as expected leaving room for the hops to transpire.

Pours deep brown/black with tan head, aroma is big coffee and chocolate notes. Taste is big coffee, more coffee, and finishing with coffee. Nice mouthfeel, some chocolate, but if you like coffee seek this one out!
