Had a bottle of this the other night and knew immediately that I was going to be sad that I couldn't have this on a regular basis.
Appearance: About what you'd expect from a stout. Dark brown-black pour with some tan-white crowning head. Laced pretty well, but nothing that blew me away either.
Smell: Rich chocolate notes come through with some toastiness as well, with the acidity of the coffee comes through more clearly as it warms up. Inviting, for sure.
Taste: Here is where it impressed me the most. Wow. Just a brilliant blend in just the right amounts of chocolate (both milk and dark), coffee, slight vanilla, and stouty darkness. Bitterness adds a little something extra, but this bottle has over a year on it and the hop present is just a little prickle on the front end. Totally, totally fantastic.
Mouthfeel: While creamy and nice, it felt just a little thinner than I would've hoped for. Still, finishes so, so smooth.
Drinkability: Up there with some of the best stouts. This is one of the few coffee stouts I could really see myself drinking over. And over. And over again. I need this beer in my life more regularly, say, with breakfast.
