Split this 4 ways with friends.
A: Thin Dark Black liquid pours out of this really cool looking bottle. Light tan head that reduces to a thin film.
S: Good coffee/chocolate character. Picking up almost a orange peel/hoppy character
T: Sweet chocolate and roasted coffee. Lots of hoppy characteristics- maybe amarillo hops giving it that orange smell I was picking up? I really enjoy this flavor. I think 2-3 more months of age will do a nice job on this beer.
M: A little thing and a little too carbonated. I like my stouts more viscous.
D: Flavors are really nice. If there is any downside its the mouthfeel. Half Acre is making some really nice beers. Check this one out!

Bottle shared by HopasaurusRex, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a solid black with a creamy tan head that dissipates rather quickly. Huge coffee aromas as well as some chocolate roast and light brown sugar. Light earthy aromas and a very faint dark dried fruitiness round out the aroma quite well. The flavor is rich dark chocolate maltiness with a bunch of creamed coffee poured over it. Light fruit and earth round out the flavor quite nicely. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation. Really nice coffee brew, I'm glad I got to try this.
