Fantastic beer. Used to only come on draft or in bombers. This year they have stepped up production and began canning select beers. Thank god they chose this one!

Appearance: Black as night, minimal light head that fades to basically nothing.

Aroma: Wow! Smacks you right in the nose. Coffee, some booze dark malts, reminds you of a lighter version of Kahlua.

Taste: Bitter in the right places, but just enough sweetness to balance it out. Lots of coffee in these notes. This is damn near perfect for and maybe the standard for me anyway in regard to coffee stouts. Not to be confused with an imperial stout.

Overall: Very well made beer from Pisgah, one of my favorite breweries from NC has another winner.

Of the Coffee infused beers of Asheville, this one takes the cake. Come in 6 pack cans this year. No more bottles. Brewed with coffee from a few blocks away at Dynamite Coffee. Very, very good beer. The right amount of coffee without being obnoxious. This is a winner.
