Pours an inky black, with notable carbonation and a burnt tan colored head, of about a quarter-inch. The nose on this is magnificent, with dark fruit esters, molasses, port wine, roasted malt, and light coffee. As I take a drink, I am almost getting chills over how good this is. Before I even comment on the taste I am giving this a perfect five for this palate-coating, creamy, velvety mouth feel. Very heavy bodied. It doesn't get any more luscious than this folks. Now, for the flavor, I am experiencing a dominant and ultra bitter baker's chocolate taste, black coffee, perhaps some Sambvca, and a sharp cognac, in a unique opposition to one another. The actual taste of the cognac is much more subtle, but the bite is there... For the finish, a light milk chocolate actually presents itself somehow. Overall, I enjoyed the hell out of this brew, as I have with their Beer Geek Breakfast as well. Worth the price - don't hesitate to pick this one up!

From a 250 ml bottle into a snifter.

A-The brew pours like motor oil, thick and syrupy. The thin head is dark, dark brown, but it disappears almost immediately leaving no trace on the glass. The brew is nearly black with traces of brown showing in the light.

S-As you might expect, there is a lot of coffee here, coffee grounds, in particular. A little bitter and acidic, but the bitterness is balanced by a sweet booze and dark, fruity flavors with molasses and Jagermeister-like sweet licorice. Interestingly, I don't get much cognac, but I get some orange...which is cognac-ish.

T-The coffee has faded a bit on my nearly year-old bottle, but there is still some dark-roasted flavor going on, as well as the sweet, syrupy, creamy flavors that I detected on the nose. I taste boozy cherries, prunes, molasses, and a hint of licorice/anise flavor. The alcohol is noticeable, but integrates well.

M-The carbonation is minimal and the feel is thick. A touch too thick for the sweetness levels, perhaps.

O-I had been hanging on to this for a while and for whatever reason, this brew seemed appropriate for tonight...a summertime stout. Anyway, the flavors are complex, the brew is balanced, and this is a pretty solid effort. I'm not sure this brew is worth the price as there is nothing mind-blowing going on, but rather, this is a well-done coffee RIS.
