I snagged this beer at a liquor store in KC, MO. Actually drank it in the morning. Would highly recommend if you like either stouts or java beers.
Appearance: Dark like motor oil, good lacing around the glass with a foamy head that dissipates rather quickly. As a side note, the can design is very simple, which I appreciated
Smell: Strong, you can definitely tell that this is a java stout when you pour it. Some of the other reviewers have discussed the coffee beans that are used for this beer. If you love coffee as I do, then just the smell of this beer might be enough to justify purchasing it.
Taste and Mouthfeel: Perhaps the least exciting part of the beer, which is not to say that it was anything but great. Maybe slightly over-carbonated, and the aftertaste is clearly coffee. Slight bite when you first take a sip, which makes it good too.
OVERALL: I would recommend that you pick up some of this beer, if you like either coffee or stouts.

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!
