On tap at Downhouse a little while ago, and have shared several growlers.

A: Pours dark brown, nearly black with a small tan head. Light lace, but the ring of foam sticks throuhout.
S: Roasted malt, bread, some chocolate. BIG coffee flavors. Though never overbarring or acrid.
T: Again big on the roast and coffee flavors. Cream, chocoalte, vanilla. Bread biscuit flavors. Finish with coffee again, but never acrid.
M/D: A medium to full body. Good carbonation and creamy smooth. Easy to sip. I enjoy this everytime I try it. Though one in a sitting is enough.

A big coffee stout. The coffee is right up front and center. Though not nearly as rough and acrid as some other examples. I like it a lot. Still, just does not make the cut as one of the ellite coffee stouts around.

Pours a dark brown almost black with a small amount of tan head. Roasted malts, coffee, and raw cocoa on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more roasted malt. Not bad, a little thin though.

Tulip

A: Pours what appears to be pitch black in the glass. It's a very deep brown. Some light around the edges of the glass. Still nice carbonation. Initially a half finger of light tan. Leaving some lacing bits.

S: Very pronounced coffee on the nose, akin to a FBS. Dark chocolate. Roast. Some vanilla. Chocolate milk like character.

T: Dark chocolate bitterness. Ground coffee. Some roast. That vanilla and cocoa like sweetness to match the bitter dark chocolate. Finish has lingering rich cocoa. Maybe a hint of booze.

M: Full bodied, but not super chewy. Fairly easy to drink

Super coffee-y! Kind of like a cold-brew with bubbles. Not very complex but delicious, excellent mouthfeel, prickly carbonation, perhaps a tad too thin in the body at the end. Very drinkable.
