Praise Be We're Still Here! and they brewed this again!! Dark as midnight on the winter solstice. Thick moca head! For those of us who remember it's the oatmeal stout combined with the java stout. The weight that rolls across the tongue is impressive, a testament to the charred malts, and extra time that went into this masterpiece. The sweet malts are crushed by the coffee; I'm looking forward to letting this sit for awhile. Drinking 3 of these will send you into a downward spiral so put it in 4 packs!

Bottle opened on 11.11.13
A - Pours a black syrup with a very small dark tan head that lingers around a bit.
S - Roasted chocolate.
T - Coffee and bitter chocolate.
D - Low carbonation, syrupy heavy body.
O - A big stout, but bitter. I guess this wasn't an IPA. For some reason that is what I was expecting when I opened it. I guess I should have read the label better.

Growler into tulip
Appearance- Jet black rich tan head
Aroma- Deep coffee, roasted malts, some chocolate, molasses, some dark fruits, a spicy hoppyness as well
Flavor- Dark chocolate, roast, coffee, pine, very bitter but still has enough sweetness to keep it drinkable.
Mouthfeel- Full and thick, but not syrupy, alcohol warmth
Overall- Very nice, huge roast and pine and in you face flavors, wouldn't mind seeing this come into rotation more.

Bottle thanks to chpueblo. Pour a deep black with beautiful one-inch mocha head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, dark fruits and honey. There's also some Brown sugar and muted hops like an aged barleywine. Taste is chocolate, honey, nuts and licorice. It remains dry and bitter. Palate is awesome. Smooth, fluffy and round. Very good fortified
