This one pours out black with a giant, sticky brown head. The head falls back slowly, and is gone by the time you finish. You get decent lacing, as much as is expected from bottle-conditioned beers. The smell is coffee, but its not quite as coffee rich as some other similarly styled beers. You get a note of the roasted flavor, like the soy sauce flavor that accompanies the darkest of malts. The taste is really great. The backbone for many coffee beers is usually a bit sweeter, but this one is dark and roasty. Very interesting. You get the bitterness shining through, but there's also a very silky feeling to it. I'm a bit afraid that without the coffee you would get all soy sauce without the saltiness. But it's a flavor that I enjoy (though I doubt most other people would actually like it). You get quite a complex burst of flavors, that make you want to sit around and think about it. There's coffee and bittersweet malts, and the roasted flavors, all with a kick of silkiness, and you always want the next drink. I don't think this is as good as some other coffee stouts, but it's still good. I can't say I would buy cases of this and continue drinking it (which is quite normal for in my case most of the stronger stouts), but the likelihood of me finding it over and over again is rare enough that I would probably buy it if I see it again.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

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.
