Had this at our local taproom. Pours a nice black color. First aroma is a strong coffee forward with a nutty malt finish. Flavor is like drinking a malty Starbucks coffee. A little on the sweet side but very delicious and smooth. They may even go down a little to smooth so be warned.

Another one that I ticked years ago but have never reviewed. From bottle to nonic pint glass. Pour is a rich cola color with a few fingers of mocha head. Aroma is lots of roasted coffee notes with dark chocolate and bread and earthy notes. Flavor is straight coffee with bitter dark chocolate bites. Rich and full. No boozy burn. Ridiculously Smooth and semi full feel. A meal in a bottle.

12oz bottle stamped 10/06/17 purchased at Moonshine Liquors in Harwich. Dark color and a chocolate/coffee nose. Taste continues the nose with shifting robust coffee and bitter chocolate taking turns. Finish is primarily coffee. Smooth with very little boozey harshness.

Amazing beer. Had it at one, two and three years old; it is clearly best fresh, as the coffee notes are still prominent. It was still surprisingly good at three years old, but it was clearly lacking something that the fresh beer had

One of the better stouts around. Super smooth and well hidden. For an 8+ ABV. Delicious!
