$ 13.57 (Including shipping)/bomber ($ 0.617/oz) from Blackwell’s, San Francisco, CA
Undated bottle at 42 degrees into a hand washed and dried JK snifter, allowed to warm to 50 degrees
Aroma – coffee and chocolate. The chocolate disappears quickly and the coffee weakens
Head – average (Maximum 2.1 cm, aggressive pour), light brown, frothy, low density and short retention, diminishing to a three mm frothy ring and a thin ephemeral partial layer
Lacing - none
Body – dark brown/black, opaque. Initially some effervescence but that ended quickly
Flavor – weak coffee, lightly sweetened. No malt, hops, alcohol, nor diacetyl.
Palate – medium, slightly creamy, soft carbonation

Overall, kind of like drinking a McDonald’s iced coffee, except warmer. On the porter-stout spectrum, this seems to me to lie more to the porter end – medium body, low alcohol, slightly sweet.

Appearance 3.5, Aroma 3.5, Flavor 3, Palate 3, Overall 3. Rating 3.15, rDev -12.3%.

Strong coffee notes on this one, slightly overpowering the malts. Wonderful mouthfeel though, very smooth on account of the oats.

First had: nitro-tap at their brewpub

Poured a dark brown with mahogany tints around the edges, and a creamy tan head that displayed excellent retention. Lots of roast in the aroma; coffee notes. Dark roasty malts in the taste, grainy oatmeal smoothness, and some roasty coffee. Smooth, but still dry in the finish. On the heavier side of medium-bodied, rich, and nicely drinkable.
