12oz bottle (VINTAGE08AA) poured into a Portsmouth goblet. Received in a trade with BeerLovinGrl - thanks Chrissy!
A - Pours an oily black, totally opaque with a thin, fizzy, soda-like head that disappears immediately. A few straggling bubbles around the edges is all that remains.
S - Deeply roasted aromas, strong coffee, dark chocolate, burnt aromas. Smells really good and inviting.
T - Coffee, licorice, and really dark chocolate. A little bit of astringency comes thru and some alcohol flavor present too.
M - Very smooth and oily. Carbonation is low - just enough to know it's there, but doesn't interfere.
D - Very smooth beer. Lots of rich flavors. If it wasn't for the astringency, this would be a really easy drinker. Just that little bit of pucker it gives holds it back for me. But overall, a very good beer.

Appearance: Pours a nice black with short dark brown head. Leaves good lacing
Smell: Coffee, chocolate, nice roasted malts
Taste: Again, coffee and chocolate up front. There are some great roasted malts in here. Light earthy hops. Little bit of fruityness
Mouthfeel: Full body, creamy feel, low carbonation
Overall: Fantastic brew, one of the best coffee stouts out there. Reminds me a bit of drinking iced coffee black, but way better.

One of my top 3 stouts, this is absolutely superb.
a: Pours a beautiful warm dark coffee color with a single finger vanilla head that dissolves smoothly.
s: Roasted coffee, chocolate, and toffee with a wisp of alcohol to balance the ensemble.
t: Beautiful rich coffee goodness, with a rich, sweet, creamy, malted chocolate finish. Insanely beautiful.
m: Bold and big.
Serving type: growler
