Served on tap into a pint glass

A- Poured black with mocha colored head that left lots of splashy lace

S- Huge mocha aroma. Freshly roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate, vanilla

T- Big freshly roasted coffee bean notes, dark chocolate, tons of vanilla, caramel, and very bready. The coffee and chocolate flavors are very bold. Lots of sweetness balanced out by a lot of roastiness.

M- Medium body, prickly carbonation, mostly dry finish, pretty creamy, and very easy to drink

O- This is maybe the best stout I have ever had and one of the best beers ever. So amazingly complex, bold, flavorful, aromatic, and drinkable. Reminds me a lot of Oakshire's Overcast Espresso Stout, a personal favorite of mine. I would say the coffee is the star of the show, but there is so much else going on too.

Got this as a gift from Swimsum. Thanks Brent!

Poured into a Stone IRS tulip.

Appearance: Poured out nice and thick, yielding a half inch of tan froth. Body is an opaque black. Head retains as splotchy patch of large bubbles. Fantastic, web-like lacing. I'm a fan!

Smell: Intense, snappy, bold, medium-roasted coffee. I'm a total coffee head, and this may be the best coffee aroma I've ever come across in a beer! Wow! Amazing!

Taste: Coffee again - I'm guessing they used quite a bit of Stumptown in this one. Rich, complex, medium-roast coffee through and through. Very nutty, with cocoa and a hint of salty oats. Fantastic!

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with moderate carbonation and a very nice lingering finish. Mmmmm....

Drinkability: Probably the best pure coffee stout I've ever had. I can't remember ever encountering better coffee flavors and aromas in a beer. I'd buy this again in a heartbeat.

22 oz bomber from Capital Market, Salem. Deepest,deepest black, black, black..wonderful frothy tan head. A thing of beauty art in a glass. Lovelly aromas, of fresh black french roast coffee, chocolate cakes,brazil nuts and cream. Taste much the same as the aroma but even more fresh dark gorgeous coffee, complex roasty ,toasty flavours assault the tongue..too many to define yet blening perfectly into a heavenly elixir. Wonderful full mouthfeel. Just a gorgeous stout..best I have had for ages
