Great alcohol legs. Medium mocha head that sticks around for a bit.
Thick and rich coffee aroma. Wonderful smell!
Coffee has mellowed out a bit since fresh. Still has a good bourbon kick. Yes!
Thick mouthfeel, its great. Excellent carbonation.
Awesome. Held on to this bottle for probably too long but whatev, everyone loved it. Looking forwars to the new release in a few days.

22oz bottle bottled on 03/26/10 bottle number 2048 poured into snifter, reviewed on 11/17/11.
A: Pours thick and black with thin brown head that quickly dissipates into a collar. Leaves little to no lacing around glass.
S: Rich chocolate and oak with roasted malt. A touch of coffee and hints of vanilla from the barrel aging. A fair amount of alcohol but not overpowering. As it warms the alcohol does come out quite a bit more, making it harder to pick out the other aromas.
T: Lots of chocolate and dark malt, nice oak presence and a hint of coffee remains after over a year and a half since bottling. A definite alcohol presence to remind you of how big this beer is. Subtle notes of bourbon and vanilla and finishes with a slightly odd bitterness that I imagine is from the coffee.
M: Thick and smooth full body with low-moderate carbonation and sweet finish.
O: Still drinking quite nice for a coffee stout after over a year and a half of aging. Quite smooth and warming, great sipping beer that goes down way too easy for 13% ABV.
