An aggressive pour allows a massive, deep tan head to erupt from the dense black body. This head is glorious, patient, and quite pleasurable.
Big roasted malt aroma leaps from the glass with sweet dark chocolate and coffee to follow with just a touch of earthy hops lying beneath.
The palate offers quite a balance of smokey malt, chocolate/coffee malt, and just a touch of hop bitterness towards the end which is eventually overcome by the sweetness of the chocolate malt and aggressive coffee finish. The aroma and flavors nearly mirror each other.
The mouthfeel is thinner than I anticipated, leaving it medium in body, with medium carbonation, somewhat milky, and a palate that pleases.
Overall this is a good beer. Great traditional flavor offerings, very nice coffee character which I like, and enjoyable all around. The lighter mouthfeel, and relatively lower abv allow this brew to flow rather smoothly.

A- Pours pitch black and rather thick for a non-imperial stout. Small, half a finger head form and is medium tan in color. Head sticks around quite a while and laces tremendously.
S- Tons of dark, bitter coffee roasts here. This is pretty one dimensional, with the only dimension being the strong coffee.
T- Big, bitter, strong coffee right off the bat. I cannot overstate the level of dark coffee bitterness in this flavor, as it almost borderlines on hop bitterness. Moves a little towards burnt and smokey malts towards the middle of the drink. The end is just the same as the beginning, with big bitter coffee flavors, although the coffee bitterness weakens a little through the course of the drink, but not much at all.
M- This beer is rather thin and light on the tongue for the very heavy flavor profile it has to support. The combination of a thinner liquid, a fairly high level of carbonation, and a heavy flavor profile makes for a moderately drinkable beer, with the heavy coffee slowing you down.
Overall, if you like dark, strong, and bitter coffee, this beer is for you. Light in body for the coffee lover who wants to pound it, this beer is really strong in coffee flavor, and quite bitter too.
