Picked this up in a great trade with Mike back in 2011! Dark brown, nearly black pour with a creamy caramel-colored one finger head with decent retention and great lacing. The nose is amazing! Roasty fresh brewed coffee and tons of chocolate and cocoa totally dominate. Also getting hints of warm milk, espresso, and just a touch of booze. The taste is just as big and just as bold as the nose! Huge amounts of roasty coffee and crazy intense chocolate are the stars. Toasted oats emerge as it warms along with hints of fresh cream, mocha, vanilla, and just a touch of cinnamon. The mouthfeel is unbelievably thick and creamy and absolutely smooth as silk. The balance is nearly perfect with malty sweetness up front and a subtle bitterness on the finish. Overall, I'm totally blown away. I've had this beer once before and remember really liking it, but not to this extent. I don't know if cellaring it for nearly 3 years did it, but this is definitely the best coffee stout I've ever tasted. I will definitely pick up more of this immediately!
