Batch from 2013. An unfortunate cherry tartness coming in and sourness taking over the aroma. Too bad as it seems the base beer is very good.

Just beware of aging. Seems like there are other reports of sourness beyond mine.

- Revised. Infected version was no bueno. New and fresh, this is solid.

Draft. Pours dark black with creamy brown head. Think. Lingers. Aromas of roasted malts and good Italian coffee. Taste good strong espresso coffee with chocolate, cinnamon and vanilla. Something bitter buried deep. Best taste is the strong espresso. Heavy stout. No carbonation. Strong espresso and malt aftertaste. Smooth though. Very drinkable. Like it as much or better than Evil Twin Donut Break. Very good imperial stout. 6-15-15 Update. Had the 15 version. Still fantastic in my book. One of the best coffee stouts out there.
