A - Jet-black color with an off-white, one-finger head of foam.

S - It smelled of java. Nice coffee and chocolate aromas.

T - Good coffee and chocolate flavors with a touch of toffee. Roasty with a touch of bitterness.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry, clean finish.

O - Another good brew from 2nd Shift. Please, keep sending them our way! (377 characters)

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #87 (Apr 2014):

Coffee, Chocolate, Delightful

A twist on 2nd Shift’s LSD, brewed with an Ethiopian roast called Aramo Grande 1 from Blueprint Coffee. Only 35 cases were bottled. Big, freshly ground coffee nose rising from a most impressive coffee colored, foaming head with. Viscous, creamy, roasty, charred raisins, milk chocolate, toffee, molasses, but not overly sweet. The is a straight up, coffee loaded, bigass Stout that was indeed a delight to try.

on tap at Baileys range, served in tulip

pour is dead black with a cocoa creamy and frothy head.

loads of roasted malt with a hint of chocolate and sugar

heavy on the roasted malt all around. bits of charcoal blended with a subtle sweetness. some dark chocolate mixed within.

light and easy, mild carbonation, a bit dry

easy drinking, enjoyable, no hint of this being 7.10% abv, i would have though closer to 5.5. (419 characters)

Surprisingly fine beer! Had mine from Tap. Smell is rich and sweet. Jet black with nice body. Medium head - but little of the carbonation peppery burn some lesser stouts leave (a plus for me) Deep burnt caramel taste with no char - and slighly sweet roast after-taste. I describe as a malty roast - but never overpowering. I like sweet Imperials and barrel aged beers and this beer made it into my top 5. Well Done. Spiff approves. Will have some whenever I see it. (467 characters)
