Onyx with a small brown head. Gone before I could get to the couch and sit down. Almost no lacing. Smells like my morning cup of coffee and milk. Sweet iced coffee on the palate, followed by burnt chocolate with some nice bitterness. Some warming alcohol to finish, but not offensive. This is amazing. I love the mocha coffee profile. The mouthfeel is grainy and moderately fizzy. This beer rocks. I wish the head was better, but the taste makes up for the poor pour. This is my favorite stout. Not the best I have ever had, but my favorite considering price, drinkability and availability.

Pours out pitch black like motor oil, thick and viscous with an ample tan head that forms up and recedes over a few minutes to a wispy layering. Big aroma of coffee is upfront, alongside sweet chocolate, toffee, and caramel. Taste is all coffee at first, rich and bold with a nice bitterness that coats the tongue. Touch of pine breaks through and blends with the coffee, while chocolate and tobacco mingle around on the tastebuds. Slight bitterness, roasted malts, and touch of alcohol arrive at the end of the sip, confirming to the brain that this is in fact a beer, not a cup of extra bold coffee. Mouthfeel is heavy with mild carbonation, smooth and creamy. Overall, this is an amazing beer. Recommended to all those who like a little beer in their morning coffee.
