Part of the Pinup Pack. Bottled on 4-9-13
Poured in to my Stone snifter.

Appearance was dark as brown can be with out being Black, showcasing an impressive mocha three finger head that destroyed the walls of the glass with sticky lacing.
The nose picked up the sweet roasted malts with coffee beans and espresso.
The taste was a espresso lovers dream. Sweet and slightly acidic. Dark and roasted to perfection with out being burnt. Flavors were authentic , crisp, fresh and bright. Like the sunrise on a new day.
Mouthfeel was solid as it should be for the style. Carbonation was present with out interfering with the drinking qualities of this brew. Suds would bounce back with a quick swirl of the glass.
Overall I would say this beer is underrated. I liked everything about it, from the label to the long lasting aftertaste. Two thumbs up.

Short and sweet - if you like this style, buy it... My ratings above say it all. If you are a novice Stout / Imp. Stout fan, choose something a bit more tame. The espresso is highly evident here, as is the ABV... Not for weak stomachs, but almost an imperial stout for those who seek a rich beer.

This was by far my favorite sample while visitin the brewery. This poured out looking like a chocolate milk due to the nitro. Once the beer settles it is black in color with a delicious creamy looking brown head on top. The smell of the beer gives off a very nice coffee aroma with a soft roasted malt backbone. The taste of the beer is chocolatey upfront with a creamy coffee flavor as well. The taste is moderately sweet with a subtle bitter finish. The mouthfeel is like silk, it is soft and creamy with a very good drinkablity. Overall it's a great coffee stout, the nitro gives this beer a very good quality. Awesome stuff here!!

bottled 5-31-13.

Served in a Schlafly snifter.

A: Looked like your average, run-of-the-mill, imperial coffee stout: Black as night with a sticky, icky head that clung to the glass and then some.

S: This one had a mocha flair (as opposed to a black, roasted coffee one) in spades. Smelled good... fresh!

T: It had a good bit of that buttercream frosting-esque sensibility that Terrapin "W N' B" has. Extremely smooth and quite delectable. Mocho milkshake.

M: Thick and creamy, and one with have to have an ABV microscope to detect anything above 4% here. 9%? Really? You've gotta be F-ing kidding me!

O: I truly think the reason this brew hasn't caught on is because of the bad blood between Old Dominion and the local consumers. I feel as cheated as anyone about them leaving the local craft scene by leaving Ashburn years ago and selling out to the giant in St. Louis. However, I'll give credit where credit is due: This beer is excellent.
