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.

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.

A - This beer is jet black with less than an inch of cocoa colored head.

S - The first thing I notice is a fresh brewed coffee aroma. I get a little dark chocolate and roasted malt as well.

T - The taste doesn't quite equal the nose. There is plenty of coffee and a little dark chocolate, but there is a rough, almost burnt malt taste on the back end.

M - Full and creamy.

O - This is definitely a beer that tastes better warm. I had a chilled one last night and didn't care for it until it warmed. Today's offering was at room temperature and pretty good. If they can clean up the finish this will be a great beer.

This one is awesome! The smell of this beer juxtiposed with the flavor is very interesting. When I first let my olfactory senses get through this one, I thought it would just be another chocolate/coffee stout. Boy was I wrong! The sweetness and mouthfeel of this on is uncomparable. It is so smooth and yet it feels so thick on the palate. It is definitely a sipping beer and one that you can only drink a couple of in one sitting, but it is absolutely amazing! The chocolate overpowers the coffee but in a very good way. You get a nice hint of coffee in the finish but you never lose the chocolate. Just the right amount of carbonation and deep caramel color make this one the real deal! I highly recommend this for a great dessert beer paired with any chocolate or caramel dish!
