A - This beer is black with less than an inch of tan head.

S - It smells like a cup of coffee with cream and sugar added.

T - The coffee stands out more than the chocolate. It tastes more like a coffee cream stout.

M - Full

O - I think it is delicious. I did just have Founder's Breakfast stout last night, so with that lingering in my mind it knocks this beer down a little by comparison. It is a good coffee stout though, and I would definitely drink it again.

A: Pours black with a mocha head.

S: Medium and dark roast coffee is the strongest scent in the nose along with roasted malt, and bittersweet chocolate.

T: Dark roast coffee dominates the taste, along side dark chocolate and roasted malt.

M: Full bodied and creamy smooth.

O: Definitely worth a try.

This pours a very dark brown/black color with a slight brown head. The aroma is very strong with coffee and some malt tones. The taste is heavy with malt flavors and hint of coffee. The taste starts off good but as you drink the bottle, it does get very malty and chalky. A good beer but it could use some improvement.
