Bottle from CJ's next to Towamencin Beverage & Pudges.
I've seen this pop up all around. Wegmans, North Penn Bev., etc.
CJs had single bottles--what a concept, right. So I grabbed the last one to see if I want a 6 or 12 pack. Free will Pale Stout was solid so hoping this would deliver.
Overall this is a great beer. Color is light for a brown, especially when I pour stouts 90% of the time. Some minor carbonation & slight head and lacing. After a few minutes it is flat with no head and no legs. Can now see the full brew as a redish-brown like a clay color.
Nose is excellent. All coffee. Dark & rich espresso like with a hint of sugary sweetness.
Taste is full on rich dark roast coffee. A hint of sweetness in the middle and then a dark and full coffee finish. Oatmeal? Maybe in the process but no flavor from it detected. Actually kind of light mouthfeel. When cold it was real creamy but thins out after warming.
Overall, try it. If you like coffee and beer then you're all set. The ABV for me was not detectable. If this was bourbon barrel aged I'd be buying growlers every few days (hint). I see they have a Choco nib & vanilla version. I may need to hunt that down to fill in between my BCBS coffee. Win/win!

I recently had this beer at The Washington House in Sellersville, PA. This beer is brewed in Perkasie, PA and the brewery itself is only about 2 miles away.
Served in a goblet-like glass
A - Beer arrived with a half-finger, mocha-colored head. It's a very deep brown, almost black color, totally opaque. Nice lacing left after drinking.
S - A nice coffee aroma
T - A huge coffee presence mixed with some chocolate-like sweetness. The beer is rather bitter but it goes down really smooth. The oatmeal isn't really noticeable. The ABV is slightly noticeable but never overpowers the beer.
M - A medium body. Medium carbonation. Leaves a slightly bitter aftertaste
O - I really enjoyed this beer. The brewery is less than 3 miles from my home and I'd gladly pick up a growler of this. I've had several of Free Will's offerings and I've been impressed with them all.
Serving type: on-tap
