32 oz growlette was poured into a snifter.

Appearance: A one finger mocha head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pitch black color with no vision of anything. Frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Roasted coffee, bittersweet chocolate, smoke, caramel, old ale, and toasted.

Taste: Roasted and chocolate up front. Everything else in the rear. Ashy and roasted bitterness too.

Mouthfeel: Roasty bitterness, medium bodied, medium carbonation, and ashy.

Overall: Nice roasty and mocha flavor. Will look forward to more of these in the future.

From a 32oz growler.
Made with French Roast coffee from Katahdin Coffee in Wells, ME.

Pours a dark black color with a thin light brown head, fades quickly and only leaves bubbles around the glass edge, not much for lacing.

Smell has huge amounts of coffee and could probably fool a few people into thinking it's iced coffee, a nice strong nuttiness throughout along with a strong roasted aspect.

Taste that first hits is a strong roasted coffee presence, slight burnt malt bitterness follows in the aftertaste, semi-sweet with a good amount of nuttiness, very little hop balance except for a slight bitterness aspect at the very end of the aftertaste, this is all about the coffee, carbonation is medium with a decent body, if it was a little heavier I could see this being called a porter over a brown ale because this is much larger in taste than your typical brown.
