On tap at a Whole Foods in Washington, DC.

The beer is black as coffee with a thin lacing that is a dark khaki-color. Lacing is sticky and well-distributed around the glass.

The aroma is delightfully similar to a sweet coffee drink. Sweet caramel and coffee hit initially, followed by cream and sugar. The coffee aroma is a deep dark roast.

Everything the nose set me up for continues with the taste. The beer is like sweet, creamy coffee with milk. There's some dark roasted malt and coffee presence, as well as sweeter malt. I get hints of oak and barrel-aging, although I don't believe I had the BA version.

This brew was exceptionally thick and creamy, only slightly boozy, and finishes dry and coffee-and dark chocolate-like.

I'd known nothing about this beer before trying it and was just blown away. It's a real treat to discover a new beer and find that it is awesome.

750ml bottle, poured into a teku glass

A- pours jet black in color with a thick motor oil consistency, small fizzy dark brown head reduces and eventually completely disappears, leaving an appearance of black coffee

S- sharp aroma of day old burnt coffee grounds up front with burnt popcorn kernels & wet cardboard. Underneath, I'm picking up subtle notes of vanilla cream, hazelnut, chocolate, charred wood & caramel. What could be a complex aroma, seems to be hidden by an overwhelming burnt coffee aroma

T- Possibly the most coffee-forward flavor I've seen from a coffee stout. Big shot of earthy and herbal sumatra-like dark roast coffee up front, followed by a sweetness reminiscent of whipped vanilla cream & caramel. Beyond that, notes of toasted nuts, cardboard, charred malt, light chocolate, & woodsy notes. The finish is slightly sweet with another hit of huge coffee flavor that lingers

M- thick & viscous body with low carbonation leads to a chewy creamy mouthfeel and a smooth, warming finish

O- this one had some great coffee flavors with plenty of complementary flavors, but they were overshadowed by the burnt coffee smell/taste. So much that it overpowered some of the other subtleties
