Sampled this at Savor 2010. Poured black with a beige head, modest retention, and good lacing. HUGE roasted coffee bean nose, with some bittersweet chocolate and cocoa powder hints as well. Copious amounts of flavor in the taste, with roasted malt and coffee dominating, and then mixing with some chocolate midpalate, and finishing on a pronounced dry coffee note. Smooth and on the thicker side, with very little carbonation. This is a great example of a coffee stout.

Bought a 5gal corny from Oakshire at the Hellshire IV/ Barrel aged beer fest. $54 for 5 gal. Can you believe it? Love having this on tap in the keezer. Great coffee flavor on a solid stout backbone.
A - black with minimal tan head that quickly fades
N - roasty malt, light nose
T - roast, chocolate, quickly turning to coffee
M - light, low carbonation
O - tasty stout with light coffee flavor
Serving type: on-tap

From the 650 ml. bottle. Received from Beer Kangaroo. Sampled on February 15, 2014.
The pour is dark brown to near black and looks excellent. Soft tan head lingers for awhile.
It is an espresso stout and that is most obvious with the aroma with dark smoky malts and coffee grinds. Low hops.
The body is full and creamy.
The taste is a nice dose of coffee but there does not seem to be much in the way of caffeine. It is also rather milky and slightly bitter at the end. This is a stout worth having if you get the chance.
