A- Pouring this one into my mug on a Sunday afternoon= great choice. Very dark brown color, about the color of medium roast coffee, which suits this beer well, considering that it's a coffee forward imperial stout. Tan colored head stands tall on this on and holds for a while.

S- Lots of coffee right off the bat, roasted burnt aromas, faint sweetness, and a bit of booze. Very enjoyable.

T- Roasted bitter coffee, toasted malts, rich dark chocolate, slightly warm boozy, yet sweet finish.

M- Full bodied, but not what I'd consider really thick and chewy. Leaves a syrupy/sticky feel after swallowing. Light carbonation.

O- Stone made a delightful one here! Probably my favorite beer by them (I rate by style, so pay no attention to higher scores to their other beers.) Great, full bodied, multi dimensional coffee stout that leaves you wanting more.
