Dark beer with a small pretty dark head. Relatively viscus.

Smells like coffee and some vanilla. A little non-descript roastiness here. Not too much else. It's nice.

The first thing that pops out in the flavor is dark fruit. A clear acidity coming through due to the coffee. There is a lot of roast flavor and rich coffee, especially on the back end. A little bit of chocolate. Not any vanilla like I found in the nose. Nice to sip and enjoy.

Medium-low carbonation. Very viscus and full-bodied. Decently creamy. I love the mouthfeel.

This is great. Acidic and roasty, but very drinkable and delicate. Not a ton of different flavors, but each of the distinct flavors are complex and highly enjoyable.

Edit: While this beer is awesome--and it is--it's absolutely not worth the price imo. Just want to throw that out.

2011 vintage

a - poured a one finger creamy, dark coffee-colored head into a snifter that left good lacing and sheeting but it was gone halfway through. the body was dark black.
s - coffee and dark fruits.
t - oatmeal, dark fruits, coffee.
m - creamy, smooth, slick. best part of the beer.
o - really interesting and delicious beer.

22oz bottle, served in a 10oz mini-tulip

A - pours with a thin creamy film of dark khaki foam. the beer is pitch black with light active bubbling. just a couple spots of lacing left sporadically around the glass.

S - begins with coffee (of course), lightly sweetened with some vanilla creamer. hints of dark chocolate, toasted nuts, and boozy bourbon.

T - huge, bold roastyness...not coffee at first but some chocolate malt and barley, slightly charred. a little sweet through the middle with notes of oak and vanilla, before a big bold earthy hop bite mashed with fresh, very dark roasted coffee beans. after warming, some dark fruits peek their head in.

M - body is a little light, with playful and slightly punchy carbonation. finishes somewhat sticky, chewy, and dry, with robust bitterness and booze.

D - gimmicky? yes. a little disappointed in the coffee profile, though taken as an RIS it still stands as a very delicious beer. great sipper, and a bit of a reward for myself for running my first 10K this morning.

So I've been sitting on this one for a special occasion. This being my 300th review I figured I'd bust the cap on it tonight.

A: 1 word....beautiful! Black as night with a gorgeous reddish coffee iced cream colored head of about 3 fingers.

S: Sweet dark chocolate with lighter coffee notes then expected. A sort of dark damp cave aroma with a touch of vanilla in the background.

T: pretty much the same as the nose but with a bit stronger coffee and more sweet dark chocolates. Also dome light smokiness almost peat like.

M: Super smooth. Medium bodied rich and creamy and oh so smooth.

Overall: This one meets expectations and then some. Althoughto expensive to drink often. I would definitely drink this as over again. One of the better coffee stouts I've had.

.5L, batch 470, brewed December 1, 2009.

Syrupy black pour with a modest dark beige head. Laces in spots and sheets all over the glass.

The nose is packed with chocolate fudge, licorice, coffee, plus some subtle alcohol.

This is a huge stout. At first it seems quite sweet and rich, with lots of semi-sweet chocolate and molasses. Then the hefty roasted notes kick in, leaving behind a bitter, dry aftertaste. Definitely for coffee lovers, as this stuff has a lot of earthy, dark roast character. No signs of Weasel feces, thankfully. As it warms there is some nice fruitiness, with an almost blueberry character. Despite the bitter, roasty finish, this stout is well-balanced and insanely smooth. The mouthfeel is ridiculously thick and chewy, with fine, mellow carbonation.

Very glad to have come across a bottle of this, as it's one of the best stouts I've ever had. Here's to my 500th review!
