11.2 fl oz brown bottle with pry off cap poured in a pint glass. Purchased on our trip to New Orleans this spring.

Pitch black and absolutely opaque. As I was pouring this, it looked like there wouldn't be much head so I poured the second half of the bottle aggressively and got a 3/8 inch chocolate coloured head. Big gobs of lacing down the sides.

Aroma is rich and full. Coffee, chocolate, burnt malts, dried fruits and a hint of alcohol.

Big, bold flavour through and through. Coffee, burnt malts, hints of chocolate, dried fruits. Kind of like a dark roast coffee with a light sweetness and faint alcohol kick.

Velvety smooth mouthfeel. Full bodied with minimal carbonation. Leaves the mouth with a bit of a feeling of being coated after each sip.

Excellent beer. One of the best stouts I've had. I really enjoy oatmeal stouts and coffee stouts and this is a great blending of the two. I wish it was more readily available! If you get the chance, give this a try!

Big 750 bottle. Thank goodness I'm thirsty. +1 for a better looking silkscreen label.

Pours a dark brown/black brew with a nice beige foamy head and good lacing.

Aroma is big roasted malts, black coffee, leather shoe or belt (your choice), bakers chocolate, smoke and rubber. Odd combo...but it works.

The taste is on the bitter side with a heaping amount of coffee beans, smoke, more leather, a dose of hops, black coffee, oak, and char. If you like a touch of some type of sweetness in your stouts...look elsewhere.

Mouthfeel was the worst part. Much too thin for all that's happening here.

Overall I thought this was good....not great. I've passed it by through the years and saw a big bottle format and jumped. Maybe the small bottle is the way to go. Dunno. That being said, I did consume the entire bottle so go figure.

2011 22-oz bottle from cellar - poured into pfreim tulip. Deep black color with finger of brown head...bigger than I imagined it would be for being so old. Lots of oaty coffee aroma with a nice roasted note. Roasted chocolate and a bunch of coffee in the flavor - lots of coffee. In fact, there was a lot of actual grinds in this one. A bit bitter, but that's expected with the coffee. Really nice one here and was excellent with about 3 years age on it.
