Jet-black in color, this monster smells of coffee and chocolate. The taste is much of the same, with hints of creamy toffee and roasted malt. Smooth and delicious, this medium bodied ale is all about the malts, but has enough hop bitterness to be balanced.

Look: 4.25 - Black with half a finger of off-white head.

Smell:4.25 - Dark chocolate, malt, toffee. I was expecting to pick up on some coffee, but I didn't. Great smelling beer!

Taste: 4.5 - A rich chocolate flavor up front and a pretty strong coffee flavor as well! This reminds me a little of Breakfast Stout by Founders, but possibly down a slight notch on the coffee. Awesome!!

Feel: 4.25 - Nice and thick with a little carbonation. Very easy drinking.

Overall: 4.3 - Overall a wonderful stout from the homeland! Always love a Texas beer. B plus.

Appearance: Small, fine off-white head surmounts a dark brown body with highlights only before a strong light. Fine-beaded lacing completely coats the glass walls. The head slowly fades away, leaving only cream-colored swirls on the surface.

Aroma: Pronounced aroma of dark malt, chocolate, coffee, dark roasted malt, char, and sweet alcohol.

Taste: Opens with cold coffee, and bitter chocolate, and dark toasted malts. Scorched caramel and roasted nut flavors appear later in the taste, as well as hints of vanilla. Sweet alcohol is a subtle undercurrent throughout. Finishes with a lingering roasted malt and coffee flavor.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, very full, with a velvety feel.

Drinkability/notes: A quite wonderful beer, it seems perfect for a winter's day with an ice storm in the forecast.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce aluminum can, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

I kinda love this beer. What a mediocre and boring can, what a deep and interesting brew! The smell is full of chocolate and toffee along with a preview of the alcohol. The taste is rich milk chocolate and some coffee, with a dash of hop to dry out the finish. I feel like it could easily be called a milk stout. The ABV is hidden nicely - it will sneak up on you. A great bedtime snack, this beer is thick and satisfying. I wish more stouts had this texture.

Draft. This one starts and stops with robust coffee aroma and flavor. It appears I got far less malt and chocolate than others. A bit too much coffee for me, but smooth and balanced enough to enjoy. I'd drink another.

Pours a dark color from a 12 oz can. Unsure of the date. No head and little lacing. Nice malt and chocolate taste. Hint of coffee on the back end. Overall a nice stout.
