Had on tap @ Prezo.

A: Rich creamy 1 finger head shows no signs of leaving the pitch black beer.

N: Rich dark malts, caramel, some roast, black and dark malts, a little coffee, some earthy spicy hops too, and def lots of oatmeal.

T: Starts very rich and thick right off the bat. Fluffy and smooth as well, with lots of dark malts, creamy oatmeal and slight powdered chocolate milk, some sweetness with more caramel, as well as lots of roast and coffee, slight chewy malts. All that with some bitterness from charred malts as well as some earthy spicy hops. I also get some minerality, and a touch of fresh hop pellets, like I just took a bit from a pelletized Warrior hop. A touch of tingly warming booze too.

M: Thick, rich, creamy and smooth, with good carbonation.

F: Finishes pretty bitter with more spicy hops, and quite a bit of the earthy charred malt bitterness and a little minerality that adds a touch of soy sauce. I also get a little tobacco, some dark rich fruit, lingering sweetness and caramel, but dries a bit with the bitterness. Some roast and coffee lingering too with a lot more creamy oatmeal. Leaves a little viscousy feel on the mouth for a long time, and a slight tingly warming booze.

From 01/28/12 notes. 2011 vintage thanks to jslot38. 22 oz. bottle into a tulip.

a - Pours a dark mahogany brown color with one finger of dark tan head and moderate carbonation.

s - Smells of coffee, roasted malts, nuts, toasted malts, and dark chocolate. Pretty nice.

t - Tastes of coffee, vanilla, chocolate, roasted malts, toasted malts, nuts, and some earthy notes.

m - Medium body and a low but great level of carbonation. Super creamy and easy to drink. Awesome mouthfeel.

o - Overall a very nice beer here. Lots of coffee to it and super easy to drink. Have had a few good things from Wormtown in the past and this is another one.

impressive beige head: thick and creamy. It settles very slowly, leaving a blanket of lace as it recedes. Dark,dark brown where no light shines through.

Mild aroma of chalky cocoa. Very dry, reminds me of the smell of fresh black patent grains.

Starts dry but becomes semi-sweet chocolate quickly. There's a touch of hops in the swallow but otherwise it's like a chocolate milk. The finish comes across like unsweetened chocolate and lingers long after the swallow.

22oz bottle purchased as a single at Yankee Spirits, Sturbridge, MA.

Poured into a stein, formed a 1 1/2" dark brown head over the opaque dark brown/black brew. Frothy head holds on and on, with lasting sticky lace. Aroma is sweet rich cake batter.

Taste starts with sweet dark malts, chocolate, coffee and vanilla in the middle, and then the coffee really comes on in the close, with a late alcohol warmth. Mouthfeel is velvet smooth, and drinkability is good. Liking this one, glad to see it in 22s.

Poured on-tap and served in a tulip, the beer is a dark brown color with a thin, frothy, brown, clingy head. Good lacing as you drink. Nose of bitter chocolate and light roasted coffee, with a touch of smokiness. Flavors of bitter coffee, roasty and coffee grounds, with a dark chocolate ribbon throughout. Aftertaste of roastiness and coffee, with a linger in the dry, smooth finish. Thin, smooth bodied throughout. Damn tasty.

Picked up a case of this at the brewery. Been waiting nearly a year for this. Really anxious to age this stuff. This it will bring out more of the vanilla/chocolate/coffee. There is a difference between this batch and the first batch they released last year...is one is 9.0% ABV, not 8.0%, and is 45 IBUs. Its worth noting that THIS WAS BOTTLED YESTERDAY!!!

A - Poured into a Duvel tulip a deep, rich midnight black. There was a nice mocha one finger head that leaves nice rich side lacing. and a thick halo/cloud.

S - Rich nose of oats (lots of oats), roasted malts, coffee grounds, cocoa nibs, and vanilla skin. Light on the booze.

T - This is where its at. Nice sweet and roasty malts with sweet oats. Alot more oat than I remember, which is nice. Very good chocolate notes along with nice fresh coffee. The coffee isnt too too strong, but thats nice as it feels more well rounded. There is some nice creamy chocolate notes as well as some good hints of vanilla. There is a faint hop bitterness on the finish. Doesnt taste like 45 IBU.

M - Really nice carbonation here. Its creamy but there is some sharp carbonation at the end. The booze isnt that noticeable.

O - Overall this beer is every bit as good as I remember it being, if not better. For me the carbonation was a big issue last year, feelign almost flat. This though, even as a higher ABV, is just delicious. A definate must buy.

2011 vintage shared by jdiddy. Pours the color of cola with a loose, tan-colored head that dissipates into a skim. Coffee aromas dominate the nose. There's also a slightly vegetal, spent grounds character as well as a trace of vanilla at the back. Taste follows nose - the coffee presence is just way too over the top though. It's not bad, but really hides any possible nuance to this beer. Mouthfeel is medium-light with a lively carbonation and a slightly chalky texture. Overall, I think this beer is really quite good and well worth trying if the opportunity presents; however, the coffee character just dominates a little too much.

A-A bit of a gusher; more of a slow puke of foam falling out of the bottle. When poured, the body of the beer is big, black and thick. The head starts off gigantic then does down to a thin mass of foam. Thick lacing rings.

S-Sweet fudge and flat cola. Sugary coffee and roast. Light vanilla with a noticeable donation from the cocoa nibs. Was expecting this to be more coffee stressed but I guess the flavor will truly tell.

T-The flavor is more coffee-esque. Like a cool glass of creamy mocha iced coffee. Fudgy like the nose with some bitter dark chocolate truffle. Oats and burnt caramel. Some vanilla extract. Creme brûlée. The flavors blend really well together.

M-Silky with a fuller body. Very soft carbonation. I would love another bottle to drink for breakfast...

O/D-Wormtown, one of my favorite breweries. Was lucky enough to stumble upon this brew. I enjoyed it but it didn't 'wow' me. It' definitely gets tastier as you make your way through the bottle.

Big roasty characters, dry, nice mouth feel. Slight sweetness, but just enough to make it go. It's delicious.

Thanks to Surge1311 for this bottle!

vintage 2013; poured into snifter glass.

Appearance: black bodied beer with 3 fingers of light tan head. The beer leaves a better than spotty lace on the glass. Good head retention as well.

Smell: Its vanilla forward stout with a mild roast and cocoa nib in the nose. This beer smells really sweet. Brewing adjuncts take the spot light over the malt profile of this beer. This beer smells great! I am digging the nose of this beer alot.

Taste: Thats a surprise! I expected to have a lot of sweet vanilla flavor based on the nose, but its not the case. Lots of cocoa and chocolate notes with a hint of sweetness. Little bit of roasty malts and a light bitterness in the finish. Not getting too much coffee either.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer with moderate carbonation. Really drinkable 9% stout; I would place it around 5-6% abv if I didnt see the label. Creamy and silky mouthfeel. Sooo darn soild.

Overall: This is my 2nd Wormtown beer. I was very impressed with Pro Am Porter and Sweet Tats is pretty good too. I was a little bit dissapointed that the coffee and vanilla didnt translate into the taste of the beer very much. Nonetheless, its a really good american stout. The nose and mouthfeel are fantastic. I must say that the creamy and silkiness in the mouthfeel is a Wormtown trademark because both dark beers that I have drank from Wormtown are similiar in this manner. Great local beer, if I could pick this up off the shelf I would be a repeat customer of this beer.

A: Pours pretty much a pure black with a huge, fluffy chocolate milk colored head. Great retention. Lots of sticky lacing.

S: Loads of coffee and roasted malt jump out - even if if the glass is a few feet away. A bit of oatmeal and just a touch of cocoa in the background. Very coffee-heavy, regardless.

T: Wow, beautifully smooth mixture of coffee, roast and oatmeal up front. The oatmeal smooths out the harshness of the coffee and really makes for a great combination. As the oatmeal fades, bitter coffee carries through into the aftertaste. No real indication of alcohol.

M: Fairly heavy, but amazingly smooth and creamy at the same time.

O: Stunning combination of flavors along with the super smooth and creamy mouthfeel just makes for an incredible brew. They need to barrel age this and it could be KBS-level quality. However, if you don't like coffee, you might want to avoid or at least age it a bit. The coffee is pretty strong, especially once it warms up.
