This is my favorite stout. It's more of a desert than a beer, and even my Mom (who's not a beer drinker) thoroughly enjoyed it! It's a playful blending of chocolate, warm grain, and caramel flavors. Its creamy without being too heavy, and the mouth feel is a perfect compliment to the taste. The head is creamy and chocolaty. It'll fill you up, but I'd be perfectly happy if it were the only beer I had for an evening! It seems like it would be good at nearly every temperature. It's color is very dark (even black), but it is by no means bitter. I HIGHLY recommend this one!

Poured on-tap into tulip.
A: Pours a super dark brown-black with 1-2 inch light mocha head. Good retention.
S: Nice dark roast coffee, dark roast malt, leather, tobacco, and a hint of molasses.
T: Wonderful coffee note in this! Dark roast coffee, dark roast malt, sweet molasses, and a hint of leather.
M: Very nice creamy feel. Light-medium body. Dry and bittersweet notes that linger.
D: An excellent example of style...nice surprise! The creamy feel paired with the excellent coffee note really makes this special. And the ABV keeps it sessionable.

A: very dark, little light getting through. Nice milk chocolate head

S: rich roast aroma.

T: very roasty. This one has the aftertaste of a bbq or chewing on coffee beans which is great for me. Earthy and caramelized sugar notes.

M: very smooth and full bodied.

Overall: coffee infused beers are some of my favorites. This one is has more of a coffee taste than many others I have tried. More like a beer flavored coffee which is fine with me.
