The label states "brewed with coffee" and "Hard Core Coffee".

Poured from a bomber into a shaker. A moderate pour produces about a one inch, creamy, frothy, sticky, head. Great color in the head, with streaks of brown against a tan background. The beer is inky black in normal light, with a flashlight showing a dim red orb.

The aroma is subtle, with notes of dark fruit and roasted grain. The flavor is well-balanced and delicious, with notes of mild, sweet coffee, chocolate, dark fruit, caramel, and oak. A lingering hop/roasted grain bitterness lies on the tongue. The mouth feel is very creamy. Pleasant burps bring up aftertastes of mocha coffee. The alcohol is largely masked except for some gradual warming and maybe just a touch of enhanced fruitiness as the beer warms.

I'm very impressed by this complex, flavorful, and very smooth stout (and quite boozy hehe). What is most impressive is the use of coffee in the brew without the flavor coming across as stale, overly bitter, or metallic. Well worth the 6 bucks I paid for the bomber at the Hennessey Market in Butte, Montana.

A - a very dark brown. As I was pouring it definitely looked more brown than black. Head wasn't too much and there is none now.

S- tons and tons of coffee. Not much underneath that, maybe a little bit of chocolate.

T- tons of roast that actually tastes burnt more so than actually coffee. Since this is a "cappicino" stout I was wxpecting it to be a little more creamy. Hardly anything else.

M- I found this actually kind of abrasive. Its not smooth or creamy and definitely has some harshness. It is very full bodied though.

O- I was hoping it would be a little smoother and more diverse but it seems the brewer just wanted an intense coffee stout.
