Pours a dark, dark brown with plenty of khaki colored head. Coffee, strong coffee and chocolate on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more coffee and some roasted malt.

Way too toasted-burned for me.

Deep dark brown. Nice roasted profile in the nose. The body is average for a mid-range abv stout. The roasted bitter flavor is solid but it clearly is a result of the roasted malt as I am not really getting much coffee in this offering.

An excellent example of a well-made stout but the price point may be a touch too high for what one gets.

Pitch black, tiny mocha head quick to almost nothing.
Strong American hops on the nose keeps me from getting most of the dark roasted chocolatey malts, but coffee does get through, black, acidic.
Same thing happens in the taste, but not that unbalanced. Bitter spicy leafy hops and coffee in the start, something like black ice coffee with a herbal note (ribwort pops out). Roasted grainy malts, with a smokey note early on, burnt and ashy towards the finish. Dark chocolate and dark fruit, but very faint. Hops keep it together till the finish, bringing some extra bitterness to the rich coffee. Just like the last gulp from a cup of french-pressed coffee.
Medium body, lively carbonation. Aftertaste has coffee and hops, with a clearer dark chocolatey note.
Wouldn't mind changing my morning black tea with this beer, but wouldn't like to get fired either. Great coffee character, with strong hops managing to simply put some extra character in here, without stealing (or messing up with the) show. That's more like it.
