Bought at new Local 44 Bottle Shop in West Philly. Poured from a bottle into a snifter.
Had never heard of this beer before but was in the mood for a coffee stout.
The pour is pitch black with two pennies width of head that fades after a couple of minutes.
As I said, the smell is overwhelmingly roasted coffee as is the taste and mouthfeel. Just really amazing stuff.
Needless to say, this is the best stout I've ever had. It is unbelievably smooth and tastes like you're drinking cold pressed coffee...perhaps spiked with a little something.
Such a drinkable beer at 9.5% leaves you wanting another as soon as you're done, sadly, I only had one.

11.5oz bottle poured into a snifter. 6 and 1 notched on the label of this twist off bottle.
A: Pours a very dark brown appearing pitch black in the glass. A mild khaki tan head sits on top, dissipating in a couple minutes.
S: Initially there is a nice dose of coffee that blends very well with a roasted malt quality. Dark fruit qualities come out more as it warms along with a touch of smokiness.
T: A beer with flavor that builds on you. At first I get a slightly bitter coffee, then a blend of dark fruit comes through. The aftertaste lingers with a great roastiness for a solid 2 minutes after each sip.
M: Very smooth beer. Creamy mouthfeel that slides like velvet over your tongue. Doesn't even seem like an alcoholic beverage. Remarkable.
Overall I am stunned with the complexity yet harmony of this beer. Coffee is just enough to add without overwhelming, hops compliment the coffee and the roastiness just works period.
