small head. dissipates very quickly. Not as deep black as I like when observing the stout in the glass. Smells unbelievable. Like a roast/coffeehouse. The aroma really is all there Taste is upfront stouty but really unoffensive. If youre ia stout head then this is very mild brew but still very flavorful and enjoyable. Very smooth and grainy. I really enjoy Hopworks and this stout was certainly no dissapointment.

Smooth sweat stout with heavy coffee notes and light body, toasty oats, rye and wheats.

Pint on tap at Beer Revolution in Calgary. Pitch black with a creamy light chocolate brown head, great head retention.

Aroma is pungently roasted, tons of wood char, dark coffee, and cigar with an undercurrent of prunes and chocolate pudding. Taste-wise, this is weighted towards the ashy elements. Dry, somewhat harsh ... Mostly cacao powder, burnt nuts, strong coffee, and ashtray with the aforementioned sweet notes on the nose eventually coming through on the palate. Getting little in the way of berry or other fruit notes. Nice milk shake mouthfeel, though, smooth and rich, medium-bodied, feels like this ought to be sweeter than it is.

I'd be curious to taste these seven grains without such a potent dose of coffee in the mix. The latter flavor is too strong, masking the other goodies that one can sense are lurking beneath.

With espresso? Sounds perfect for beginning my day. (Okay, not actually.)

Super dark, as you'd expect. Tan head. Cold, dark coffee in beer form. I'm reminded that I don't like black coffee.

This one's not for me.
