A: dark, thick, nearly opaque. Little over a finger of head, decent lacing.
S: COFFEE! A bit of dark chocolate and malt.
T: Even more coffee! Dark, rich, roast; and lots of it. Great bitterness. Dark chocolate and malt still comes through, but the 8% abv is completely hidden.
M: thick and creamy full body the way an Imperial Stout should be.
Overall, coffee is the star of the show, and it is fantastic. Not as complex as some other big stouts, but it is Java Stout and it lives up to that name.
Serving type: growler

Poured into a flute glass with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
A: Cola brown with a tan half finger head that quickly turns to foam. Light lacing.
S: Heavy duty coffee comes on strong. Malts and chocolate bring in a weak 2nd and 3rd.
T: Zow! Smooth coffee and espresso. Chocolate tips the bill. Robust. Rich. When I added the ice cream, it frothed like crazy and gave me a killer taste sensation of coffee and vanilla.
M: medium with medium carbonation. Slightly bitter on the finish from the coffee, I guess.
O: A terrific coffee stout. Recommended.

Picked this up at Albertsons in Carlsbad new Mexico on a trip. A beautiful dark brown pour with low light brown head. Smell is of coffee and hops. Taste is amazing. This may be my favorite coffee stout out there. Almost hard to describe mix of coffee malt deal fruits and earthy undertones. Great lasting mouthfull make this a beer I would drink daily. As it suggests in the morning not with donughts!
