It's dark and viscous. Lots of foamy light brown toffee looking head. Plenty of retention.
The nose on this is much more subdued than other 'coffee' stouts I've had. A good bit of coffee detectable. Definite oatmeal with some dark fruits lingering around in there. Roasted malts like to come through as it warms.
Sweet and prickly right off the bat. Flavor is very relaxed. I was definitely expecting something different, but it doesn't make it bad. There is a nice contrast between the coffee and oatmeal, I just wish the flavors were a tad stronger. Lost of dark chocolate on the back on the tongue as you swallow. For what this beer lacks in aggressiveness, it more than makes up for in complexity.
Full-bodied and clean. A very tad bit of a bitter linger, but not bad. Mild carbonation.
Overall it's a good beer. Light in ABV for a stout, but complex enough to keep you interested. I would definitely take other easier to obtain, cheaper to purchase stouts over this though.
