Tasted 2012 and 2013 side by side.

2012 was served from a bomber bottle near room temp. Mellow coffee aroma, with more of a tropical coffee flavor. Solid base stout. Would have preferred it to be chilled a bit more, but the beer was excellent. Dark tan head.

2013 served on tap and was more of a coffee bomb. High quality coffee flavors on the beer base. Nose is 95% coffee. Same dark tan foam, dissipating to a swirl in the glass. Flavors emerged more as it warmed a bit.
