Serving type- A 22 ounce bomber poured into a pint glass.
This beer pours a nice black color with no carbonation activity present after the pour. There is a nice two finger off white head that sticks around for a least half the beer. There is really no cling to the glass either. As far as the smell goes I am picking up heavy notes of roaste malts and small hints of the oatmeal. Overall a nice smelling beer, it seems to set itself apart a little from other stouts in terms of smell. In regards to the taste this is where the beer shines. It is front loaded with a roaste malt flavor that which mellows out quite nicely. A good tasting beer that makes this a must drink when available. I recieved this beer from madhombrwer as part of a Portland locals box. A very nice beer that is going down rather well.

Poured from 16oz tall can into my Selkirk Abbey tulip. ABV is listed at 5.8% and the can doesn't say "7-grain", but it's definitely Survival Stout with coffee, so -- I assume it's the same beer.
Appearance: black body with some brown highlights around the edges. Head is a finger of frothy tan foam. It's an attractive beer.
Smell: plenty of coffee aroma with a little chocolate underneath. This beer does a good job of employing the coffee element without being too astringent or harsh. I like it.
Taste: coffee is more subdued in the flavor than in the aroma, which works well here. The overall effect is a light mocha with a hint of vegetal, earthy hops. It's a very smooth stout that I quite enjoy.
Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and a nice creaminess for the style. I quite like it.
Overall: this beer, while good at the beginning, manages to keep growing on me. It's just a delightful and drinkable stout that, while not overly complex, is well-wrought and smooth as can be. Kudos!

Bottle into my fancypants new Sierra Nevada glass. Barley, wheat, oats, amaranth, quinoa, spelt and kaput are the seven grains.
Like coffee -- clear and brown as it's poured; pitch black in the glass. One inch of hyperactive foam pops and fizzles.
Major, acrid coffee aroma first. Dark chocolate and oats next. At once spicy and smooth.
The flavor is smoother, more balanced. Coffee, yes, then toasted wheat, sourdough, oatmeal and milk chocolate melding as one.
Silky medium-light body is a touch too thin. Alcohol is noticeable in the nose and on the tongue. Mild, tingly carbonation.
A decent coffee stout overall, and not too heavy or alcoholic. Easy to drink.
