Enjoying right now shock chilled in the freezer for 20 mins from room temp in a red solo cup. Oh red solo cup, so old school.
A: Pours a coal tar black with absolutely no lacing. It's anti-lacing and will remove lacing from previous beers from the sides of your red solo cup. I'm seeing proof of this. God I love it.
S: Smells of the best cold espresso, brasil nuts, oily cigarette smoke and wet tar paper. It's as if your favorite dive bar was hosed down, mopped up in Wesley Snipes dew rag, and squeezed out of a 200 year old Mr. Coffee for your enjoyment.
T: Tastes of so many complex coffee variants with a definite tobacco and cocoa backend. Wet throughout with alcohol well balanced. Aftertaste reeks of chewed cohiba cigar, Kahlua and smoked hops. Maybe that's their secret, pre-smoking the hops. Slight alcohol on the exhale with a slight peanut flavor from the oats.
M: Wetness. Carbonation is an afterthought. Starts wet, finishes wet. Minimally carbonated so it goes down like a wet slipper.
O: A stout with a lot of character. It's impressive, but I must suggest that Intuition Ale Works beer called The Underdark eclipses it.

Served in a snifter
A - It is black night. I barely got any head. Just a sparse covering of mud colored foam was on top. It dissipated quickly.
S - The smell is straight up coffee and cream.
T - The taste starts out with dark chocolate and vanilla. Then comes the coffee with rich roasted flavor and just enough bitterness to balance out the sweeter start.
M - Full with relatively low carbonation.
O - This is one of the better coffee stouts that I have had. It reminds me of Short's Cup A Joe which I love.
