Pours nearly black with molasses highlights and a modest cap of mocha foam that settles slowly and evenly into a thin film. Aroma smells of roasted malt, coffee, and dark fruit.
The taste features a big, acrid kick of black coffee acidity up front that eventually yields to a blend of herbal, resinous, and citric hops. Hints of dark fruit lurk in the background but are unable to fight through the burnt coffee and hops. A slight grapefruit twang lingers into the finish. The mouthfeel is probably the highlight here--slick, smooth, and luxurious, with relatively vigorous carbonation for the style, which actually helps cut the bitterness some.
Overall, this is an interesting brew that features a complex array of bitterness, however it lacks much in the way of a counterpoint. Coffee lovers will probably be pleased, but it's not a stout I would gravitate toward myself.
