truly a beauty, and from a brewery i never heard of before this one, its a real pleasant surprise. dark brown pushing black, shiny but not letting hardly any light in, the head is an inch high, settles but keeps stiff peaks like well beaten eggs. great nose too, coffee and roasted unmalted barley meet right in the middle, with the coffee taking the lead on the taste. i get a little sweetness to this, although i dont think its a milk stout, it just has that sweet body and lingering finish, a fantastic medium to transfer these flavors, early bitter coffee, but more balanced than most of its peers. its still a beer, yet the coffee does something unique to this. fresh brewed coffee all the way though, i love how the carbonation rises up at the end and crisps up a medium bodied finish. soft and delicate in feel, but about as robust as they come in terms of flavor. the use of coffee here is as good as any. while the base beer is great and distinct, i think the use of coffee rivals the best in the business, the very best. my first beer from bent river had my palate wet for many more. love this.

12 oz. Bottle. Not sure if I got a bad batch or what but when I pour this beer into a glass the head is, for lack of a better word, unmanageable. Takes 10 minutes for the head to die down. So it takes a long time from opening this beer until the time I get to drink any. The head itself tastes like an ashtray-not indicative of the taste of the beer. The beer itself has nice roasted coffee flavor but a little too thin for my liking. It's just ok.
