look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Served in a Three Floyds Teku glass.

A - pours a clean looking tobacco colored brown. From a vigorous pour, a nearly 3 finger deep frothy head that's dark sand in colored. The head maintains longer than I was expectd, leaving some traces of lacing.

S - gourment coffee - more like Starbucks than Folgers. Yummy! Roasty, slightly acrid and chocolate.

T - lots of coffee roastiness paired with lots of sweet milk chocolate and a tad of sweetness. A slight bitterness linger but it seems to be more of a roasty malt and coffee bitterness than hop bitterness. A tad of fruitness, most linkely a yeast profile.

M - full bodied. Slick and creamy on the tongue. Very nice complement to the loads of flavor found in the bottle.

D - surprisingly easy to drink. I found myself drinking well over half the bottle while writing.

Overall, a damn tasty beer - I'm going to find a few more bottles tomorrow. The mouthfeel and gourmet coffee flavors and sweet chocolates make this beer so special. I'm a big a Breakfast Stout fan but would pick this up most any day over it.

22 ounce bottle. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head that sticked around for a while. There's a small amount of lacing. It smells like black coffee and roasted malt. Doesn't sound like much, but it does smell good! It tastes like coffee, roasted malt, and a bit of bittersweet chocolate. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's creamy and a bit slick with moderate carbonation. This is certainly a coffee dominant brew. I think it's good overall, and I'd buy it again. $8.99 a bottle.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Pours a very dark brown with a small 1 finger light mocha head. Head settles to a film fairly quickly. Leaves plenty of lacing on the glass.

S: Smells of amazing dark coffee with a hint if some sweetness.

T: Spot on the nose, dark yet moderately sweet coffee.A tiny bit of roasted malts.

M: Silky smooth, medium body and carbonation.

O: Overall this is excellent. Lots of delicious silky smooth coffee. These guys never cease to amaze me.
