Thanks, Spartan213!

A deep black that leaves great lacing down the glass. Very sticky. Somewhat persistent light brown head of small bubbles. Very pretty, especially for a low ABV stout.

Nice roasted coffee notes throughout, along with more simple and straightforward black and dark malts. A hint of vanilla.

The flavor follows the aroma. Nice cold-pressed coffee character without any of the stale coffee flavor I sometimes worry about in beers like this. A hint of vanilla and definite chocolate emerge as well.

Thinner-medium bodied, though appropriate.

Very nice lower ABV coffee stout. A great Sunday beer to enjoy while watching football.

A - Pours in a snifter - Pitch black with a ring of creamy mocha head. Not much lacing or head retention to speak of.

S - Coffee, espresso, chocolate.

T - Bold cofee flavor, espresso, some of the sweetness comes through in the form of chocolate flavors in the back end.

O - Solid stout, I'd love to have this at the brewery in TC. This is definitely worth a try if you can your hands on a bomber.

Notes - 22oz bomber shared by Closer Paul in garage with myself, Tom and DLP while watching the Tigers clinch their 3rd Straight AL Central.

22oz. Picked up in GR on a trip home. A very dark black pour, just a thin layer of tan head. Minimal retention or lacing.

Aroma, a nice coffee, some chocolates and hazelnut. Roast malt is pretty faint.

Taste, Again a real nice coffee and hazelnut. Some more roast malt here. Coffee and light anise finish. Definetely a coffee forward brew.

A little on the lighter side, making it quite a nice session type stout. No alcohol to speak of.
Maybe a could use a little more stout to round things out, but coffee beer fans will approve.
