Poured into a pint glass. Deep wonderful black color with light brown head. About 1 finger, goes away fast and has no lacing. Smells fantastic. Chocolate, mostly dark chocolate or cocoa nibs. Some molasses and like a sweet tobacco with heavy coffee. Tastes like chocolate and strong coffee with a sweetness like molasses just like the smell. What isn't evident in the smell is the good bitterness that gets through and some hops. Well balanced, medium mouthfeel fairly creamy. Very solid overall stout. Good product. Nice artwork on the label, pours nice, deep black look, great smell and great taste.

Very tasty, heavy coffee flavor with mild dark chocolate that starts off malty and sweet and due to heavy coffee has a slightly acidic finish. At 8.3% alcohol is well hidden by flavors. Not the best but one of the better coffee stouts around for sure.

Very heavy, creamy mouthfeel...the coffee is complimentary but not overwhelming...it is extremely well balanced with the bitter chocolate and roasted malted, with a faint cream note...not an envelope pusher but probably one of the most elegant & exemplary stouts out there

Lacked the flavor complexity one would expect from the style.
