Coffee black--a dark, muddy brown--with a large tan, creamy head and tons of Jackson Pollock lace.

Smell is milky coffee with a little baker's chocolate, light roasted malt and some astringent hops.

Tastes quite bitter for a fresh coffee stout, with light roasted malt, and piney hops that bring this too near Black IPA territory. A little milk chocolate, charred brown sugar, and vanilla comes up as it warms, creating a bit of a smoothing effect.

Pretty frothy and tangy.

Canned on 11/4/16. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours a very dark brown with a fluffy tan head that falls leaving nice retention and sticky lacing. The aromas have lots of cocoa malts along with some hazelnut. Some subtle roasted coffee notes, but the coffee isn't too overwhelming in the aroma department. The flavors are more bold and rich. The coffee comes through in the flavor department. Lots of dark chocolate with some hints of caramel and toffee. Roasted malts are there. Solid bitterness. Nice coffee flavor in the finish. Mouthfeel is light with moderate carbonation. It's very smooth and easy to drink.

This is a solid coffee stout. It's balanced and fun to drink. Not bad at all.

Had on tap at the brewery.

Thick black stout, maybe thicker than everything else we tried outside of Dark Apparition. Otherwise not much different in appearance.

The smell was unique for a coffee stout. Lots of wood and smoke, which was odd at first, but actually intriguing. Dark bitter malt and very mild coffee beans.

Light French roast dominates the flavor, along with sticky malts. Slight sweetness, but mostly bitter from the malt and whatever hops there were. The coffee was a tad underplayed, but smooth and likable.

Very dry, what else is new?

A solid beer for sure. But when compared to the growing plethora of coffee stouts out there, this one is more middle of the pack.
