Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this growler.

The beer pours dark brown to black with a tan head. The aroma is strong coffee with not too much else. The flavor is a mix of strong black coffee, some chocolate and some roasted malt. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very good coffee beer.

Screw-top growler received via trade from SSW117. Thanks for the opportunity.

Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a 1/2" dark brown head over the opaque dark brown/black brew. Head falls gradually, with sticky lasting lace. Aroma is lightly of coffee and dark roasted malts. Taste is the same dark grain character upfront, some sweetness in the middle, and the coffee comes on at the end. Mouthfeel is smooth, and drinkability is easy. A coffee-head may want more prominent espeesso character in this beer, but it comes out just fine for my taste.

Wasn't listed on the menu or labeled on the tap handle, but I asked the Server what the seasonal beer was, and this was it. Poured a rich black, with creamy tan head that lasted a bit. Smell was rich roasty and big on coffee, and taste was really rich with a creamy mouthfeel, and really hearty strong espresso flavor with a nice smooth finish and aftertaste. I would recommend trying this.
