This batch of our favorite coffee stout is super rich, with decadent flavors of blackberry, milk chocolate, and - dare we say - cinnamon? We really love what this coffee contributed.

Actual erupts over the top, for a growler like this is totally Wtf?!

Big frothy thick head hits 1.5 finger and fades semi slowly with tons of soapy lacing, pitch black beer. 4.5

Nose is great, big fresh roasted coffee with earthy nutty coffee, coffee grinds with little acrid roast, mild caramelized coffee syrup, mild fudgey cocoa, mild roasted malt, but mostly just fresh roasted coffee nutty mild fruity coffee bean note. 4.75

Taste starts a bit fudgey, cocoa, creamy dark choc milk, bitter dark choc, etc. Into coffee galore, mild earthy nutty coffee, mild fruity bean note, big espresso roasted coffee, chewy coffee fudge, big nutty almost pbj when the nutty and fruity coffee. Finish is sticky but drier, light booze note, long lingering fudge and fresh roasted coffee. 4.5

Mouth thick and fudgey, lighter on the carb though, maybe due to the eruption, mild booze. 4

Overall awesome! Amazing coffee, fresh roast, nutty earthy and even fruity, with nice fudgey thick base beer, delicious! 4.5

Hands down one of my favorite stouts of all time. Grabbed the maximum number of 750ml's I could and enjoyed for a few days. Super rich but with no bitterness. Try some if you can get your hands on it.

So this thing erupted and was a cascade of beer...never seen something like that happen before from a growler. Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice dark brown nearly black hue with a two finger mocha head that fades levee light sticky lacing and a thin head 4.25 (x .05 = .213)

S - Aromas of super roast coffee, rich and black with some nice fruity young coffee been notes. Loads and loads of coffee. Super faint chocolate, this is really just a glass of black coffee 4.75 (x .2 = .95)

T - Taste is similar to the nose, absurd account of black rich expensive coffee grounds. Delicious fruity greener coffee beans. Nice roast, chocolate milk..just story tasty with a light bitter coffee roast on the finish 4.5 (x .45 = 2.025)

M - Mouthfeel is really lightly carbonated, lightly creamy. Perhaps due to the freak eruption. 4 (x .1 = .4)

O - Overall this beer was really atomic and delicious. Love the fruity aspect of the beer. 4.5 (x .2 = .9)
