From the 16 oz. can that was canned on 04-16-18. Sampled on Aug 19, 2018.

You cannot argue with the way it looks. It is a deep dark brown to near black and a tan colored head that fades some. Looks like it should,

The aroma is coffee front and center withy a sweet malt character too. Earthy hops perhaps but the sweet malts really take this over.

Smooth, creamy, medium mouthfeel.

There is definitely a sweet roasted malt character in the taste but the burnt coffee grinds seem to jump forward and take things over. I'd drink it again.

Very dark brown/almost black with a tan head.

Smells of sweet milk and coffee

Coffee taste is much stronger than the smell gives on. Super smooth mouthfeel. The oatmeal stout is a great backdrop for the added coffee.

This is really good and on par with some of my other favorite coffee stouts. Would definitely get again.

A: Pours a pitch black color with 2 fingers of head that slowly fades down to a nice cap that leaves good lacing

S: Roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, and light char

T: Starts off with the roasted malt, char, and dark chocolate and then picks up the coffee mid-palate. Finishes with lingering coffee and char

M: Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A great breakfast stout that has plenty of dark chocolate and coffee. A nice sipper for sure

Many thanks to SawDog505 for this can.

A - Pitch black pour with frothy, sticky coffee colored lacing.

S - Dark chocolate, roasted malt, light char, and coffee.

T - Char, coffee roast, dark chocolate malt with a hint of sweetness and a little bit of cream at the very back end.

M - Big medium body that's borderline full bodied and has a little bit of thinness around the edges.

O - An easy drinking stout packed full of flavor.

This beer was a dark black color. There was a small tan head.
Strong coffee aroma, charred grain, and a hint of chocolate.
Espresso coffee, chocolate. The char persists for some time.
Very dry.

16oz can into a pint glass. canned 3/5/18, so 4 months old.

pours muddy brown but produces a a black body with a healthy bubbly tan head. leaves good lacing.

nice aroma of coffee

smooth tasting stout with a slightly bitter coffee accent. There is a hint of chocolate towards the end.

Close to full on the mouth, slightly bitter coffee on the finish.

Overall, a very enjoyable drinkable coffee oatmeal stout. Happy to have another 3 cans in the fridge.

Poured from a 16oz can into a tulip.

L: Pours dark, 1/2" or so of creamy brown head, faded quickly.
S: Roasty, hints of chocolate, vanilla, coffee.
T: Bitter and sweet marry in the best of ways. Not at all overpowering in one direction or the other, which is something I was worried about. Chocolate, coffee, slightly burnt notes. No hint of the alcohol.
M: Slightly thinner than I was expecting, but low carbonation, and enjoyable overall.
O: I've been hit or miss with Springdale, however thoroughly enjoyed this beer. For me, hit all the notes I'd expect a breakfast stout to hit. Not overly sweet, right balance of bitterness.

[IMG] Poured near room temperature into my favorite Teku glass. Pours a very dark mahogany with a very attractive half inch light brown head that leaves very attractive thin rings of lace as it slowly settles into a thick layer of bubbles. 4.25

Smell is cocoa nibs, dry coffee beans, French vanilla, and some biscuity grains. 4

Taste follows but bigger and better cocoa and coffee just dominates this beer, with some vanilla and biscuity grain in the bold dry finish. 4.5

Mouthfeel is a big medium, plenty of carbonation for the style, seem dry as a bone and that isn’t a complaint, and tastes bigger than its 7.5% ABV. 4.25

Overall this is a great, fairly one dimensional beer. Roasty, dry, and so darn tasty.4.25
