Pours dark black with a thick chocolate colored head. There is great retention of the head, and as it slowly disappears it leaves sheets of thick lace. Aroma is of roasted malt, dark chocolate, fresh roasted espresso, oak, vanilla, and a bit of dark fruit.
This beer presents a lot of roasted malt up front, with some sweet chocolate, giving way to plenty of coffee flavor along with a touch of oak on the finish, with an espresso-like bitterness on the finish. There is a nice balance from the bitterness of the roasted malt and coffee and the sweetness in this beer. This is a delicious beer. I would prefer a little thicker mouthfeel but its by no means bad. This is right up there with Peche Mortel and Founders Breakfast Stout for me, maybe just a notch below. Its a terrific coffee stout.
