Ah...the infamous weasel beer!

This beer poured with a rocky, volatile, big-bubbled head and a nice, dark body. The head then dissipated fairly quickly leaving a lasting slight ring. I wasn't sure what to expect from the aroma, but it was surprisingly reserved in the coffee department. There was a bit of dark-malt character and maybe even a hint of tartness, but otherwise it was kind of dull. I expected a strong dose of coffee, but it didn't find it. The flavor was better, though. The taste has a rush of dry-ish/dark malts up front, some English yeast characteristics, dark sweet-ish fruit later on, and a touch of coffee. Again, the coffee character is milder than I expected. In fact, the coffee almost gets lost within what would normally be just a coffee-style character from various roasted malts. If nothing else, this was a fun beer to try, and I liked it more than the regular Beer Geek Breakfast.

Thanks to chefmikeanderson for the brew.

A - This looks absolutely perfect. Inky black, with a slow-forming head that rises as a creeping crimson froth but emerges as a taupe head about two fingers high. As the glass drains, there remains a series of alternate stripes on the glass that mimics a racoon tail. Probably the best looking Stout I've ever seen.

S - The nose is shockingly vacant; I wonder, is it me? I pass it to my girl and my best friend, but they too find a nose of scarteen, zilch, nada. As it airs out and warms up, a vague roastiness appears and an impression perhaps most akin to pencil shavings. I am taken aback at how plain and flavorless the nose is.

T - The taste is quite a bit nicer than the aroma, but it still falls quite short of world-class. There is some coffee in the flavor, but it is not tremendously prominent, nor tremendously tremendous. I also pick up on some sharp lumber-wood flavors, and some bitter-herbal hop. I am less and less impressed by the minute.

M - It is not the picture of viscosity, but it is tremendously creamy and has a very enhancing feel.

D - This is a nice beer, lacking in some aspects, outstanding in others.

Pours a gorgeous pitch black in my duvel tulip, with a thick creamy two plus fingers of espresso colored foam. The head holds on through have the beer and leaves thick spider webs of lace. Truly a beautiful looking forward. The nose brings notes of dark roasted malt, earthy bitter chocolate, freshly ground mocha java finishing with a touch of forest floor and campfire. The taste right away reminds me of a borderline rauchbier, heavy on the roasty notes which i perceive more as smoke. Chewy and thick with light carbonation, the coffee acidity and slight hop bitterness pulls this beer in balance. A very well made and sexy beer - i have a problem with the heavy roast making it hard to taste any of the flavors, though the coffee peaks through along with dark red fruits.

Update just had this beer from the same batch as my previous review (which i apparently wrote drunk based on the non sensical beginning). Still picked up the roasty/smoky note as the most prominent taste and the dar fruits have faded but the beer seemed to be better balanced. The chocolate was lighter and the coffee dropped out, but this still is a very tasty stout and i would lift my taste score to a 4 with the others remaining the same.
