I just don't get the hoopla about this one. Just doesn't do anything for me.

Just drank the 2015 version of this and I felt like I had an awesome cup of coffee. Compared to brickstone who also made a stout with dark matter coffee. Half acre definitely got it right. Color: dark black like a cup of expresso. Smell of fresh brewed coffee house. Taste: like I'm running in a field of coffee beans(corny yet funny)! Feel: like Cookie Monster with his cookies. Overall: fantastic! And it has a super cool peel of sticker with second design underneath! Nerd alert!! What 2 do with my sticker?!?

Strong, roasty espresso smell with a medium body. I enjoyed this brew considering I love strong coffee.
