This is one of my go-to beers so i figured I ought to actually give it a proper review.
Pours pitch black from the bottle, looks to have an oily kind of body from the pour. About a half inch brown head rises up and goes away in relatively short time. A very pleasant looking stout.
Smell is strong coffee and subtle sweetness, dark chocolate notes in there is well, but this is very much a coffee beer.
The taste is in line with the smell, coffee forward in the initial tasting, but it mellows a little over time. Finishes slightly bitter but not astringently so. Just a great tasting beer, though obviously if you are not a coffee fan you will have some issues with this one.
Mouthfeel is very smooth, creamy, and somewhat thick. Less so than say, 10-50, but more so than Brooklyn CS. For me, just about a perfect mouthfeel.
The smoothness makes this a very drinkable beer.... heavy yes, but the flavor works so well in hand with the texture that I feel I could just keep drinking it. The minimal to no sense of alcohol aids in this as well. One of my favorites, get it if you can.
