Pours like sludge, pitch black with a tiny amber head that dissipates instantly (probably from the coffee).
Smells of coffee and dark malt. Really though, the coffee takes over here. Like coffee mixed with sweet oatmeal, almost chocolate milk esque.
Tastes like quality coffee with hints of dark chocolate, some grain/oatmeal character in the back...small dark-malt astringency. Slight hop spice adds a layer of complexity. Overall the taste is all about the coffee and accenting it.
The mouthfeel is fantastic here. This beer is viscous and creamy, almost milk-like.
This is a great stout that really emphasizes the coffee flavor. The other, complexities are subtle (chocolate/oats) that only emphasize the creamy-coffee aspects of the beer. I've had more complex and interesting stouts, but this beer really is unique and all too drinkable. Still, best coffee stout I've ever had.
