Appearance: This is the most opaque beer that I know of. There are a few that are blacker in hue, but none through which less light passes. Rich dark brown head tops off this monster.
Smell: Dark roasted malts and coffee, but this beer has more of an intensely aromatic quality than simply a smell. The coffee gets in your nasal passage and lingers there.
Taste: All great stout flavors are here. Starts off with sweet oatmeal, gives way to dark chocolate, which then swirls with bitter coffee into a long aftertaste. All this is laid upon roasted, but I wouldn't call it burnt, malt.
Mouthfeel: Incredibly smooth and remarkably soft on the palette for such intense flavor. You won't find a more full-bodied stout.
Drinkability: Easy drinking, and leaves you wanting another, since the alcohol is so well hidden.
Notes: This has become one of my favorite stouts. It's great from the bottle but amazing on tap. It somehow manages to be even smoother and creamier on tap, and the coffee isn't quite as in your face as from the bottle. Talk about breakfast food being good all day!
Serving type: on-tap
