Finally found some of this around (all the stores around here only order one case and it's gone immediately usually.)

Poured into pint glass.

A: Pours pitch black and develops a small tan head. I poured it maybe a tad too cold and with a tad bit of water in it, which most likely hindered head development.

S: Smells of a nice iced coffee with some chocolate, toffee, and vanilla.

T: Wow. This is what the Sam Adams Black and Brew (which I reviewed earlier) wish it could be. Starts of with a bit of subtle coffee enveloped in a luscious dark chocolate. A bit of roasted malt, coffee, and cream come after that. Finishes slightly bitter. Perfect meld of all flavors. Really amazing.

M: Creamy, but not terribly thick. Has about the consistency of coffee and cream.

O: This is amazing to me. Such a perfectly balanced combination of flavors. This is truly perfect for drinking with a nice steak, egg, and potato breakfast.

A: As dark as the night is long. A black hole would allow more light to pass through it.

S: Coffee, toffee, chocolate

T: As a previous reviewer said it really does taste like it smells - so again coffee, toffee, chocolate

M: Heaven wrapped in velvet

O: This is a perfect stout. Try with breakfast, lunch, dinner, Thanksgiving, Easter, Kwanzaa, Yom Kipper...you get the idea. Go get some.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A: Pours a deep, opaque black that lets hardly any light through. A small tan head soon dissipates to a thin skim of bubbles on the surface and some nice lacing.

S: Not the strongest smell but a really nice one, sweet and roasty.

T/M: So delicious and creamy. Coffee dominates the flavor up front, with hints of chocolate and malt as well. There's just the slightest touch of bitterness and the finish betrays a hint of the alcohol. This goes down real easy and smooth.

O: A near-perfect stout, with a really big, delicious flavor. The kind of beer where it's hard to resist drinking a whole pack at once just because it's so good and so compulsively drinkable.
