This version was listed at 10.5% ABV.

Poured in a pint glass, this brew was deep brown, nearly black, thick, but not motor oil, with a light tan head that was less than a centimeter tall and quickly faded.

Aroma was slightly sweet and malty, but lacked depth.

Flavor was rich with dominant coffee and chocolate flavors. Slightly sweet with very brief bitter notes. Depth approaching a barrel aged brew but overall more balanced.

Feel was thick but not heavy.

Overall a very good stout.

2018 release from a can. This year labeled as 10.3% abv.

Another pitch black coffee stout. Sinister looking as the thin tan foam quickly becomes non existent leaving nothing but nothingness. A glimmer of deep chant flickers from the top when light catches it just right.

Light roast coffee is heavy handed, and there is a sweet cola spice. Toasty sweet bread and a dark berry puree lie a vast and deep foundation. Milk chocolate adds a decadence to the aroma.

Molasses comes into play in the flavor. Other than that, the aforementioned ingredients are all once again present, but make a clearer picture altogether. A cherry chocolate truffel with a coffee dusting coat. Finally, those cola like spices seal the deal. Once it warms, it shows a bit of a metallic side.

Smooth and rich but this quickly fades into a dry and lightly roasted finish. All in all, this is on the sweet side which masks the alcohol warmth well.

A great coffee stout. More decadent overall with the coffee being just a part of the equation rather than the sum.

Cheers.
