look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

poured from a 1L growler, only a couple days old.

A- Pitch black, with a thin khaki head. No light penetrates.

S- Ridiculously coffee forward. There's a sweetness in there as well, I'd love to know what they added to balance the coffee bitterness, but it sure smells good. I do not think it's lactose however.

T- Holy crap. It's so freaking good. It's like the best cup of coffee w/ cream you've ever had. Other coffee stouts dream of being this good. Alcohol sweetness is there on the finish, but you have little idea it's 11% Bitterness is perfectly balanced by the sweetness.

M- THICK. Coats the mouth like crazy.

O- World class, big brewery beating epicness.

On-tap at Al's of Hampden, Enola, PA

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a quarter finger high tan head that died down, leaving some lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of dark cold brewed coffee are present in the nose. The smell becomes stronger as the beer warms up.
T: The taste follows the smell but has much stronger flavors of coffee beans and a lit to moderate amount of associated bitterness. Slight hints of sweetness from the stout are perceptible.
M: It feels medium- to full-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is an intense coffee stout that is packed with lots of coffee flavors. It tastes just like a robust cold brewed coffee with bits of sweetness. It is quite drinkable considering its strength because any bits of alcohol are well hidden from the taste.

Serving type: on-tap

Pitch black, coffee colored head fades fast, minimal lacing. Big coffee notes, toasted malt, toffee, vanilla, anise, slightly sweet smelling. Big roasted malt flavors, coffe rides in, sweet toffee and anise. Full body and super creamy. Amazing stout with classic stout flavor and great mouthfeel.
