Poured from growler into a tulip

Appearance- light copper color with a tan head that fades quickly and does not leaving much lacing.

Smell- chocolate and oatmeal cookies, maple sugar, faint roasted coffee. Smells like a great imperial stout and immediately your eyes begin to question how light in color this beer is.

Taste- chocolate, cocoa, oats, and lots of coffee. The coffee taste isn't the normal coffee I get from most stouts, its a bit sweeter. So much complexity with every sip. First comes the chocolate, then you take another sip and it changes over to a sweet coffee and oatmeal taste. And some maple sugar sweetness.

Mouthfeel- medium to full mouthfeel, medium carbonation, the coffee lingers for a few seconds.

Overall- Quite a tasty beer. The drinkablity is off the chart. Its so complex but yet you just want to drink it so quickly. This will be great for summer when you want to enjoy a refreshing roasted/chocolaty beer, which I've never said about a 10% stout. The light color of this beer really does change how you perceive your drinking experience. I can't wait until they bottle it. Pairs best with brinner.

Apparently this one is great on draft. From the 22oz bottle it was not the same experience. Drain pour for all. Tasted like green peppers and smelled putrid like vomit. Infected? I dunno, but it was the worst beer i have had in some time
