Black as night and impenetrable to light. A trace of dark brown head is barely present. Sweet aroma of coffee,molasses and roasted barley. Taste is initially bitter with the coffee and roasted barley and then it turns fairly sweet with molasses and fig notes. The fade adds a touch of bitterness presumably from the roasted barley or some bittering hops. The mouth is a bit thick and viscous.

32oz growler into a snifter.

Pours a thick pitch black with a nice creamy head. Smell is big on coffee... a lot of coffee. taste is quite thick and has a real big and overwhelming coffee flavor and a good amount of bitterness. biggest stand out of this beer is the mouthfeel... it is super thick for a non barrel aged stout. exceptional feel.

overall a beer you want to drink at the end of a tasting or night because it will really overwhelm all the others with the coffee. thick mouthfeel is awesome.

A- Mean looking. Pitch black with a toffee colored 1 finger head with staying power. Coats the glass really well.

S- Fresh roasted coffee, cocoa powder, and cinnamon. A health dose of hazelnut that is an awesome twist that you don't normally come across. Smells like a coffee infused Abraxas. Nose is superb, like everything I have had from Perennial.

T- Coffee and chocolate again. While the nose seems more milk chocolate, the tastes comes off as more raw, bakers chocolate. Big and bold. Malty roasted goodness in a glass.

M- Feel really shines. Full, thick, and the creaminess really comes together well with the coffee.

O- Outstanding example of the style. One of my favs. Mouth feel is a true highlight.

$17 for a 750 ml
