A - completely black, tan head drops to a decent cap, visible carbonation, nice lacing
S - wonderful chocolate and light coffee, rounded out by some lovely oatmeal, a very full aroma
T - coffee is much more evident in the taste, it's not overly roasty for a stout, but very nice in the finish, hop bitterness shows up long after every thing else. As it warms, it becomes more balanced with some sweetness, while the coffee softens and becomes more complex with hints of smoke and bittersweet chocolate.
M - not overly full or heavy, but very creamy, leaves a dryness in the mouth just like drinking black coffee
D - unique and very complex, but it is just slightly overdone on the dry coffee flavour
I didn't even know this beer existed, so I consider myself lucky to try it. The aroma is heavenly. If I could change anything, I would give it more body, and either cut back on the coffee or increase the crystal malt for some sweetness to balance.
Thanks to Goldorak for the bottle!
