Pours an opaque black color with a solid one inch milk chocolate head that is frothy and dense, lingering a while, and leaving sheets of lacing when it dissipates.
Aroma is intensely coffee dominated, with roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, and an almost caramel sweetness adding complexity. Hints of dark fruits lurk in the background.
Flavor follows suit, with intense roasted coffee carrying throughout. Chocolate, dark cherries, and rich malt flavors balance fairly well. The coffee flavor is not at all acrid, as I've become accustomed to in inferior coffee stouts. There's a slight nuttiness that emerges as it warms.
Body is fairly thick, smooth, with minimal carbonation. There's a touch of dryness at the finish.
Overall, probably the best straight coffee stout I've experienced. Put this beer in a bourbon barrel, and it would rival bourbon county stout or kbs.
