This one pours from 22oz bottle almost a pitch black with an ample head of foam that shrinks to a fine layer with some lacing.
The smell is of sweet malt with some hop nose.
The taste has some roastiness to it and some semi sweet chocolate notes up front that smooths out and ends up a bit on the bitter side in the finish. A pretty noncomplex stout that is easy drinking but lacks real character...at least for me.
Bottom line: Nothing really bad about this brew but there's not a whole lot going on. I'm glad I tried it but it's just not interesting enough to warrant another try.
More a rich creamy golden ale with coffee than a stout. I've had some golden stouts that really do resemble a stout, but this has none of the faux hints t dark malt at all, just cream and coffee. I liked it, but misrepresented as a "stout." Christpuncher (3214) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Light coffee and roast malt flavor with a milky note. Had a draft pour in steamboat pours black with a thin tan head.

Sampler at Twisted Pine. Appearance: bit of tan head, black color, great lacing. Aroma: chocolate, coffee, caramel. Palate: creamy texture, full body. Taste: sweet, with the slightest bitter finish. Overall, nice balance, well done appearance and palate. Good beer. BVery (11395) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle. Nice very dark pour with a very minimal head. Mild roast and sweetness on the aroma and taste. Palate is a bit thin. Finishes a little dry. Just okay.

Bottled. Pours a very dark creamy brown with a dark tan head, poor retention. The aroma is also creamy, with roasty notes too. The taste is initially bitter with malt, then the cream evens it out. Finished with coffee malt, overall pretty full bodied, one of the better twisted pine beers. Dodgrblu (756) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 25, 2013
12 ounce bottle from sampler pack, Total Wine Sacramento, under-carbonated, slightly watery.

Black with a thin mocha head. Nice balance between sweetness and coffee bitters. A bit thin, but still tasty. dalekliz (926) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle. Pours a deep black with a huge tan head that leaves a lot of lacing behind. Big roasted malt aroma, with dark chocolate, wood, burnt toast. Taste starts big and and burnt then picks up more creamy sweet sugar and malt, ends with dark chocolate toast. Lingering roastiness. Pretty tasty.

Bottle poured a dark brown hue w/ a thin creamy tan head fully diminishing and some lacing. Moderate caramel and roasted malt aromas. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a light bitter finish of short duration. Tastes are medium roasted coffee, caramel, and brown sugar. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel, and soft carbonation.
