Served in a pint glass at Odd Side 8/25/12.
A: Served a dark, "koffie" brown-black with a smallish plop of khaki colored foam on top. Retention was ok with a small amount of lace left behind for decoration.
S: Fairly aromatic beer with a surprising amount of chocolate as well as coffee tussling for my attention. Healthy roast as well.
T: See above. French press and/or espresso flavors all over this beer. Chocolate lends nice balance.
M: A bit thin, but then again, this IS a coffee stout and its' bittter thinness isn't TOO out of place.
O: Very enjoyable. Would get this again in a second if they brew it again.
Serving type: on-tap

This stout is dark brown, reasonably thick but letting alight light into the body. The frothing medium-brown head starts at a seemingly dense finger before the big bubbles dissipate to leave behind a foam, which in turn leaves behind moderately heavy spotting.
The aroma offers plenty of roast, notes of coffee grounds (specifically dry), cocoa, and meaty sort of walnut. It's both a little powdery-dry and somewhat creamy.
The roast offers a sort of twang on the tongue, a touch of char all the way through, with a certain nuttiness and a hint of something like wood smoke.
The feel is frothy with a bit of a nip in the crispness. It has a steely note and is thinnish for the style in its medium body, particularly as the palate combines that with the mineral feel.
