Ridiculously smooth black dark roast coffee like stout. Smooth blonde coffee nose. Fantastic stout.

L: Dark oil, with light tan head.

S: Dark roast coffee dominates the nose.

T: Coffee notes continue, pipe tobacco and leather enter. Touch of bittersweet chocolate in the finish.

F: Disappointingly light, but then I noticed the conservative abv.

O: Another solid beer from Swamphead. Would like to see an imperial or barrel aged take on this.

On draft at the Owl Cafe Tap Room in Apalachicola FL. Nice mellow coffee flavor, but the beer was a butter bomb! Lots of diacetyl--undrinkable. Swapped it for another beer.
