12 oz can, bought about a year ago, stamped on the bottom with 'VINTAGE 2016 135...'

Look: Pours a very dark brown with a head that quickly dissipates. The bubbles are tiny.

Aroma: Dark malts, coffee, alcohol, perhaps chocolate and dark fruits; very nice and complex.

Taste: Very similar to the nose, which is good, yet the finish was a bit lacking.

Feel: very creamy. I can tell it is an oatmeal stout (reminds me of Great Divides Oatmeal Yeti).

Overall: I don't think this is really that much better than the standard imperial coffee stout. Based on the rating, I am a little disappointed; I don't see any reason to seek this out. Still, a very good beer.

Found this in a can at Wegmans (mixed 6 at $11)
a) Terrible name. Strong brewer. Pours jet black mounting a finger of dark tan head that slowly fades but laces little. Strong on darkness.
s) Liquor like, with a fine wood, alcohol, brandy, licorice and coffee nose.
t) Continues and expands on that dessert drink taste and feel, up there with any sipper like grande marnier, etc. It's super smooth with a dominant espresso coffee core layered with hints of dark chocolate and alcohol heat.
f) Heavy, thick, very light carbonation, nicely finished, and smooth. Never too sweet or cloying,
o) Sum is greater than its parts.

On tap at Cloverleaf Tavern in Caldwell. Pours a jet black ebony hue with moderate frothing. Assertive aroma replete with hints of chocolate and mocha. Similar overall flavor profile.

2017 vintage. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours almost black with a creamy khaki head that slowly falls leaving great retention and nice lacing. The aromas are coffee forward along with some caramel, chocolate and vanilla cream. Malts are there. The flavors follow the nose. Roasted coffee along with some more chocolate and caramel. Chocolate syrup in the finish. It's not bitter and isn't sweet. It's perfectly balanced. Nice malt backbone. Alcohol goes completely unnoticed. Mouthfeel is on the softer side of full-bodied with moderate carbonation. It's smooth and dangerously drinkable.

This is a great coffee stout. The coffee comes through in the aroma and flavor departments. It's very enjoyable and fun to drink. I really like it. Well done.

Pours a very dark brown. So brown it looks black. The pour produces less than 2 fingers of mocha, foamy, somewhat lasting head that leaves only a little lace. Aroma is roasted & dark malts, coffee & cold coffee grounds, dark bittersweet chocolate, toffee, a hint of dark fruits & a faint hint of anise/licorice. Taste is earthy coffee, toasted bread, dark bitter chocolate, toffee, prune & fig. Hop presence is best defined as an earthy bitterness just after mid-sip through the aftertaste. The roast & bitter character intensifies in the light chocolate cola aftertaste. Nice coffee notes in both the nose and mouth. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, smooth & more silky than creamy.
