Appearance: Poured a very dark brown, almost black color, with a very light head that faded to a thin film
Smell: Great coffee and some slight dark chocolate and roasty malt aromas.
Taste: Lots of espresso flavors up front, with some dark roast malt flavors on the back end.
Mouthfeel: Pretty thin for a double/imperial stout, but creamy and nicely carbonated.
Overall: Very nice stout from an up and coming brewery - love what these guys are doing.

Dark, roast notes. On the drier, bitter side. Would love to taste a BA version of this. Dark motor oil in color. Arguably the best stout made in Colorado Springs.

The beer appears jet black but with only a very thin tan head; minor lacing clings to the glass. Smell emits a strong coffee scent mixed with a deep roasted grain component. Charred grains and bitter chocolate flavors; coffee grounds. Medium bodied, semi-dry finish.

A pretty respectable stout packed with strong roasted grain and coffee notes.

my first beer from this colorado springs operation is a pretty good one, maybe somewhere short of imperial, but definitely a bigger stout with a ton of roasted barley and a dense viscous mouthfeel, but still plenty of carbonation. the session imperial stout maybe, if you can imagine. it pours an earthy dark brown from the tap with a little haze and a soapy lighter brown head. the nose is bitter char and booze, with a hint of bakers chocolate and stale coffee in there too. the flavor is a little more cohesive, with the dark roast running all the way through but the expected bitterness in the finish being tempered by maybe some oats, there is a mild sweetness there and it finishes quicker than anticipated. the alcohol stings a little, and shows through maybe more than it should for its strength, but there are those who would argue that its part of the style to include that, so i cant fault it much. not overly distinct or far reaching with this one, but a well made winter brew. i have to go check this place out.
