Pours out really thick and black. Very slight bubbles but I poured it really slow. Been in the Growler for 4 days.
Smell is charred malt and coffee bean. Some chocolate but it's dark and very creamy smelling.
Taste is just mellow as it can be. Wonderful cherry and dark black bitterness with a sweet maltyness combines all at once. What is left is a bitter blackness that sticks around for a long time.
Mouthfeel is very clean at first then a sticky bitter-sweet takes over till the end.
Drinkability is just perfect here. I want to drink this whole growler.
I think this is just as good and probably better than the bottle. Glad Kane at Roof Brothers in Paducah, Ky got ahold of this keg.
Serving type: growler

12oz into a snifter, bottled 11/09/13
Pours pitch black with a finger of mocha colored foam. Good retention and lacing, no carbonation coming up from the sides of the glass
Smells of dark roasted coffee, dark chocolates, some vanilla, dark fruits, toffee, and finishes with some alcohol. Everything comes together pretty well
Taste is with the nose pretty well, strong upfront coffee and dark chocolate along with figs, cherry, and other dark fruits. Vanilla and toffee on the finish, ending with a splash of alcohol
Feel is moderately bitter with a heavy body. Finishes pretty dry, alcohol concealed well but enjoyably present
Overall glad I got to try this. Three more sitting in the cellar
