Brought home from a growler after a visit to Al's of Hampden/Pizza Boy and split with 2 other beer pals. I really found this one flawless. Balanced and flavorful in every way you want a stout. A lot of coffee in the nose and a lot of chocolate in the taste. Smooth finish, nothing off/ashy etc. Its just dialed in perfectly.

12oz snifter on tap at Fourth Street BBQ in Charleroi PA:

Look: Pours an amazing jet black with a nice tan head of about an inch with lacing!

Smell: Tons of coffee notes right off the bat! Also hints of chocolate, vanilla, and maybe some oats! Aroma is killer!

Taste: Huge coffee notes dominate! Not overly bitter like some coffee beers can be! Also some notes of chocolate coming through! This beer tastes amazing and the high ABV is so well hidden! Soo smooth!

Feel: Medium to heavy bodied! Great mouthfeel!

Overall: Amazing double coffee stout from the crew at Pizza Bpy! This is one of the best coffee stouts out there that I have ever had! High ABV is soo well hidden! I highly recommend picking some of this up if available!

Coffee for days. This is by far one of Al's best beers. Plus, they started filling pounder cans with this bad boy. Honestly would stack this up with Speedway, Oak Yeti, Founders Breakfast, and other big coffee stouts.
