Appearance: As dark as a starless night. This brew is a deeply opaque black color with a huge tan head that lasts until the bottom of the glass.
Smell: The aroma of this brew screams Espresso. Fresh espresso beans, fresh espresso coffee, FRESH ESPRESSO! There are also some nice milk chocolate, caramel, and roasted malt notes hidden beneath the mound of espresso beans.
Taste: This brew tastes like a dream (a WET DREAM). First the fresh espresso notes hit hard, followed by a nice dark chocolate flavor. Than the roasted malts and the subdued but creamy caramel-like sweetness come into play in the finish.
Mouthfeel: Smooth as silk and as creamy as a milkshake. This is one of the best beers I have EVER had, but I LOVE coffee!
Drinkability: How can a 9% abv espresso assault be this easy to drink. This is easily the easiest drinking coffee beer that I have ever consumed. In fact this is one of the easiest drinking strong stouts that I have ever had as well.
Seriously, if you can get this.... GET THIS!!!

11.5oz bottle poured into a snifter. 6 and 1 notched on the label of this twist off bottle.
A: Pours a very dark brown appearing pitch black in the glass. A mild khaki tan head sits on top, dissipating in a couple minutes.
S: Initially there is a nice dose of coffee that blends very well with a roasted malt quality. Dark fruit qualities come out more as it warms along with a touch of smokiness.
T: A beer with flavor that builds on you. At first I get a slightly bitter coffee, then a blend of dark fruit comes through. The aftertaste lingers with a great roastiness for a solid 2 minutes after each sip.
M: Very smooth beer. Creamy mouthfeel that slides like velvet over your tongue. Doesn't even seem like an alcoholic beverage. Remarkable.
Overall I am stunned with the complexity yet harmony of this beer. Coffee is just enough to add without overwhelming, hops compliment the coffee and the roastiness just works period.
