Poured a thick viscous ruby as it left the bottle and settled into a opaque black body with a small tan head. The smell was enormous notes of espresso and just a slight hint of some chocolate and toffee sweetness in the background. The taste was a coffee overload which was smooth in the front and had a very interesting buttery finish. As it warmed hints of smoke and chocolate started making their way to the front. There was really no hops presence in this beer, but I'm not complaining because the taste was heavenly. Carbonation was pretty apparent, but for some reason it complimented the beer quite nicely. This only furthers my notion that organic tastes better. Seek this out!

Bought a single for $1.99. No bottled on date, despite the label promising one.

A: Dark brown, cola-like color. Some scattered lace, leaves a thin wisp of foam.

S: Espresso, chocolate, almost smoky aromas are what this beer's aroma is all about.

T: The taste is mostly all coffee, probably the most coffee-like beer I've tasted without having actual coffee in it. A mild milk chocolate and grape flavor comes out at the end, especially warmed up. The hops add some moderate bitterness, but this beer is about the roasted malts.

M/D: Creamy & velvety, oatmeal stouts almost always excel at mouthfeel. A great beer to drink by itself or with dessert.
