22oz into a snifter. Pours jet black w/ a thick mocha head that settles pretty quickly to a thin film.
Aroma is rich black coffee, chocolate, and dark roasted malt. Smells tasty.
Taste is sharply bitter, roasty. Strong dark coffee, chocolate, roasted malt. Great balance.
Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, coating with a bitter, semi-dry finish.
Overall a surprisingly tasty coffee stout.

A: Poured jet black with no carbonation leaving no bubbles, no lacing, no head...nada
S: Coffee, chocolate and roasted malt
T: Immediate espresso, roasted malt and cocoa. There is loads of old like, stale Folgers coffee on the back end with astringent, bitter finish.
M: Big body but flat.
O: Pass on this one. The ultimate lack of carbonation kills this beer.

A gift growler from some of the breweries employees that came over mountains.
Poured into 10oz glass. Poured a slightly translucent black with a thick, creamy, dark tan head that had decent retention and lacing.
The aroma is predominately coffee with nice malt undertones. The flavor was less coffee intense and more beer-like with a nice hop tang on the end.
Body and mouthfeel were typical for the style.
Overall, a beer nice little. I don't drink coffee and don't like coffee in my beer. If you do like coffee beers, this one may be a little light on java for you, for me it was at a tolerable level. Worth trying if you're over on the dry side of the Cascades.
Serving type: growler
