A new batch has been made, so I came in here to edit my review. My favorite beer by this brewery has been dialed in, rebrewed and made even better. This is a contender for one of the best coffee stouts I have had.

This is sunny side up with the inclusion of a coffee roasted by a local company. On tap at Als, the brew pours black in color with a brown head that holds across the top with a lace and colects around the rim. When held to the light, it displays some clarity around the edges.
The smells is exceptionally strong with a fresh scent of coffee/espresso. A hint of coffee bean citrus qualty along with plenty of earth and roasted grain with a scent of bitter cocoa that is quite appealing.
The taste includes a blast of fresh cold pressed espresso. Bitter burnt grain, unsweetened cocoa along with a minor citrus touch of coffee beans. There is a lingering earthy aftertaste somewhat reminescent of tobacco.
This is a medium to fuller bodied brew with a modest to lighter amount of carbonation. A big alcohol factor creeps in with a earth aspect but it isnt present in flavor. Nicely done and very distinguishable from the base version that is already a solid brew on its own right.
Serving type: on-tap
