It comes in a deep black color with a wonderful coffee head. It's a beautiful brown head. One of the more beautiful stouts.
The aroma and flavor are just huge. It smells of big espresso beans and bitter chocolate. There's also big oak character.
Such a smooth stout, it has wonderful roasted espresso flavor and sweetness and then woody oak chip flavor. It has a lovely body. It's almost like a rich, dark chocolate coffee milkshake. It hits the flavors with its complex flavors, the creaminess, and mouthfeel spot on.
My issue with this beer however is the aftertaste. It's hard to pin down, but it makes you rub your tongue on the top of your mouth. I prefer this beer colder because as it warms up, the aftertaste gets more prominent. It's almost a chalkiness or Nestle malt that sticks and lingers around. A slight offensive flavor.
