Growler purchased today at Pittsburgh PA location poured into a snifter glass:

Look: Pours an amazing jet black with about an inch of head. Lacing is present and retention is great throughout the consumption of this brew.

Smell: Tons of coffee on the nose! Also hints of chocolate and roasted malts.

Taste: Taste follows the nose! Huge notes of coffee right off the bat. Then the hints of chocolate and malts shine through.

Feel: Medium bodied. Wish this was a bit heavier.

Overall: This is a very solid coffee stout. One of the better ones I have had to date. These guys at Fat Heads can do no wrong it seems. Glad I got a full growler of this brew! I recommend getting over there and grabbing a growler of this while you can.

Pours a dark chocolate color. Has an aroma of coffee and roasted malts. Flavor is roasted coffee, malts with a slightly bitter coffee finish. Leaves a clean pleasant aftertaste. Overall a delicious coffee stout.

Had this on 2011-09-10 at the brewery in Cleveland, OH (from notes) had again on 2014-11-27 in Pittsburgh at The Urban Tap (on tap)

A - Deep, dark brown with a 1/2-finger dark tan head and mild lacing.

S - Expresso, chocolate, hop oils, vanilla.

T - Even more expresso than the smell, mocha, vanilla, dark roast astringent. Very tasty.

M - Medium body and a surprisingly-high level of carbonation. Not thick. It really scrubs the pallete after presenting the big flavors.

O - This is a really good coffee stout. Flavors are comparable to the Founders Breakfast Stout although this isn't as thick or as high in alcohol.

Notes - This batch was entered in the Great American Beer Festival.

From 05/30/15 notes. On tap ta the brewpub in Pittsburgh, PA.

Pours a dark brown color with one inch of brown head and low carbonation evident. Nose is nice, lots of chocolate, some light coffee. There is a lot more coffee in the taste, caramel malts, swete chocolate, charcoal, roasted malts, dark chocolate, and cream. Medium body and low carbonation, body is smooth as hell.

Overall very good, probably the best beer on tap not named Head Hunter. Worth checking out for sure, more coffee in the taste,
