UPDATED: FEB 7, 2012 On tap at Stogies and Stouts and FBG Fest 2010. I really enjoyed this beer. It pours a nice dark brown/ black with an off-white head. Nose is earth, coffee, roast, slight sweetness, and malt. Flavor is similar with a medium body and lingering roast and coffee. I really liked this beer both times.

First off, if you been paying attention to my ratings (and I hope you have, there is a test), you have probably deduced that I love coffee stouts. Some might even call me a sucker for ’em. So this was right in my wheelhouse. Great coffee aroma and flavor, maybe a hint of chocolate in the background. Thinner bodied, so it’s easy to drink. Really tasty brew.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2016 It’s now basically a pure coffee stout and it’s gotten to a point of being solidly above average. So good work.

On tap at WOB Port Orange. Super dark color with a thin brown head. Very dry flavor with hints of roasted malts. Aroma had hints of dark chocolate and nuts. Not too bad but perhaps just a little too dry.
