Murky, lots of lacing, nice head. A really nice beer. Not a style I've had that much, but one I'd like to try more of. The stronger abv gives a nice balance to the typical Euro stout flavors. Kinda different, kind nice. This seemed much less potent than it is, but very enjoyable.
Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a New Belgium goblet. Notches on back label indicate it was brewed some time after March 2013.
A- Pours a fully opaque black color with a 1/2 inch tan head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a sheer sheet of surface foam. Thick lacing clings tightly to the glass. There are also little bits of sediment at the bottom of the glass. Hm.
S- More chocolate than espresso is detected in the nose plus there's a solid shot of booze. Notes of vanilla, molasses and caramel.
T- Strong alcohol presence as well as heavy dark roasted malt. Notes of dark chocolate, vanilla and coffee, though the coffee presence isn't as apparent as hoped. The booze lingers in the aftertaste and so does the bitter roast.
M- Somewhat creamy and thick with medium-low carbonation and a very full body.
O- Though it's definitely a bit hot, it's a halfway decent coffee beer.

Picked this up at my favorite beer store in Belgium, Dranken Geers. Dark brown, nearly black pour with one finger beige head that fades quickly with nice lacing. Roasty nose dominated by the espresso along with hints of dark fruits, dark chocolate, and a subtle touch of sourness. The taste is much the same with espresso again dominating with hints of dark chocolate, mocha, raisins, licorice, and a tart, almost sour, bitter finish. The mouthfeel is medium to light bodied with light carbonation, leaning towards being thin. The finish is very tart and bitter. Overall, it's a solid coffee stout, but nothing special.
