Growler from The Growler Guys.

Black with a dense, dark brown head with excellent retention and lacing, this looks great! The nose is awesome, Plenty of coffee, dark roast with some cocoa, chocolate, a touch of vanilla. The palate is similarly coffee heavy with a wonderful, deep, medium-dark roast character with cocoa, mild fruitiness, a little vanilla. Drying, roasty on the finish, a little thin in spots, this beer is solid. A better mouthfeel - a slightly bigger body, perhaps? - would make this a LOT better.

Had this twice ... once on tap, and then in a growler taken home.

The beer is dark, with very little head and no lacing to speak of. Nice roasty aroma. The flavor has cocoa and roasted notes, a bit of coffee, and then finishes with a tartness that almost verges on sour. I'm not sure if I got a bad batch, or if this is the way it's supposed to taste. It doesn't taste bad, it's just surprising to find that tartness in a stout. The mouthfeel is medium, somewhat thinner than most stouts.

This is certainly a good beer, but it's not in the same league as other beers I've had from Barley Brown's.

64oz growler filled yesterday @ The Growler Run.
served in a tulip glass.

Pours black with a thin, foamy, toffee/brown head.

Lots of espresso and vanilla upfront, blends into lightly roasted malts.

Medium body, foamy mild carbonation.

A very well done breakfast stout. I hope I see it on tap more often.

This beer pours a dark, rich, inky black hue with definite off-white lacing. The aroma begins with rich notes of roasted coffee, caramel and fig. The beer is rich on the palate, with a full-bodied mouth-feel and a soft, tongue-coating oiliness that feels almost milky in nature.. The flavors coat the mouth and show strong notes of coffee, heavy cream, and baking chocolate with a finish that lingers of burnt caramel, toffee, and a hint of coconut.

This is an amazing offering from Barley Browns that I found on draft at a growler place in Portland. I think only Founder's Breakfast stout would be close in the running for best style in terms of flavor, texture and price point -- (I got a 64oz growler fill for only $12.99). I look forward to more darker offerings from Barley Browns in the coming winter months.
