Deep reddish brown body and two plus finger thick foamy head made this beer look nice in the pint glass. The can it came in was well designed as well. The smell that the beer emitted was a heavenly mix of chocolate, coffee, and hops. I didn't even need to bring the glass to my nose to smell this. The taste was out of this world, with a perfect balance between sweet chocolate, toffee, dark cherries, and figs; and bitter coffee, hops, and burnt toast flavors. There was hint of lactic sourness in the finish. Very creamy in the mouth at first with and astringent punch at the end. Freaking outstanding introduction to this brewery.

Served from a 12oz slim can into a Newport Storm pint.

Appearance- Smokey/grey/blackish color with mocha head. Lot of lacing.

Smell- Tons of bitter coffee with some caramel and chocolate. Some nice vanilla oakieness. A little booze.

Taste- Chocolate and coffee! Bitter coffee and sweet chocolate. Extremely well balanced. Nice bitter hops at the end with a little booze.

Mouthfeel- Lighter in body with smooth carbonation. Phenomenal.

Overall- This is incredible! Might surpass Breakfast Stout in the realm of coffee beers.

On tap at Kickbacks in Jax. Poured into a snifter. Beige head, moderate to low retention on a dark ruby, almost black body. Clear oily, sticky lacing. Aroma includes roasted malt, cocoa puffy chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Taste closely follows the aromas. Medium mouthfeel, NO alcohol noted on aroma or tasting. Insanely drinkable considering the abv. Really, really a tasty beer, borderline genius.
