Dark dark brown. Made a lot of brown foam at the growler station, but not so much in the glass. Heavy roasted grain and espresso on the nose. A little bit of mineral graphite. Dry cocoa and a touch of caramel taste. Light dryness balances nicely. Dry sensation build pleasantly without too much power.

L: Dark black with a few hints of Ruby, a small white tan head and no lacing on the glass.

S: Strong aroma of roasting coffee beans, slight hints of Roasted pepper, notes of chocolate and Roasted malt.

T: Sweet milk, chocolate, some Roast coffee. Flavor a little disappointing compared to aroma.

F: Thin body and fairly watery.

O: A average stout that needs a thicker body.

32 oz crowler. Pours root beer brown, finer tan head fades leaving little lacing. Roasted coffee aroma, mild. Nice roasted malt taste, plenty coffee, bitter chocolate. Mouthfeel is thin but slick. Overall light n tasty brew, enjoyed it.
