Nose is cherry with slight coffee. Taste is heavy alcohol with coffee. Their cherry stout is better - not that this is bad because it is outstanding. The coffee is lost in this one, however.

Doesn't get any better. Strong,dark and lots of great bourbon. Pools like motor oil and lives up to the name and the wait.

2013 bottle into mini-snifter.

Is it even possible to make a better coffee stout? I'm leaning towards no.

Pours used motor oil black. Coffee notes beat up nose and palate upfront. Smooth full-bodied aftertaste with that great bourbon finishing note. Definitely the best coffee stout I've had to date.
