Enjoyed this one at the Terrapin "Horizontal" Monster Tasting at the Brick Store Pub in Decatur, Ga.

Appearanace: Bears a turbid black opaqueness topped by a dense tan-colored sudsy head. This beer just exudes a kind of delicious stickiness.

("I hate to see you doing this to yourself." - Liver)

Smell: Fresh French-press coffee all over the nose. In fact, the coffee aspect is a real nose hog here, as I smell little else (but with real coffee in the brew, what did you expect?). A few brief hints of dark chocolate (topped with coffee), Kahlua (with a coffee chaser), and roasted caramel (over coffee ice cream). Very alluring!

If you don't enjoy coffee, let's just stop right here. Otherwise, proceed!

Taste: Each mouthful is arabicrammed with rich coffee goodness. A great roasted malt profile kept in check by a luscious creaminess. At first, I thought there was a slight hop presence, but later I was of the opinion that there wasn't one - which is just fine with me. Let the hoppy beers have their hops, and let the coffee-loaded stouts have their coffee, I say.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied, but was rather thick on the tongue, with a very smooth, oily texture and a long espresso-like finish. The alcohol is altogether warming and soothing. I'm really gonna need a good palate scrub after this one.

Drinkability: This stout is in no way a weakling, but its not overly heavy. Absolutely one-dimensional with its intense, well-defined coffee flavors, though it is upfront about it (and I can't fault it for it). Considerably drinkable for being a coffee-laced beer containing a decent amount of alcohol.

In short, this was a very enjoyable (coffee) stout.

Bottle shared by Curran. Thanks man!

Pours a thin looking watery black, with a small quarter inch head, and not much lacing.

Smells incredibly strongly of nutty roasted coffee, with roasted malt, and baker's chocolate.

This has one of the strongest coffee flavors in a stout that I've ever had, but it's also nicely integrated, as well. Creamy chocolate and vanilla flavor- slightly bitter chocolate chip flavor, with Hershey's syrup, a cookies and cream flavor, and a very small amount of hop bitterness.

This one is medium bodied, but I wish it was a little thicker. Low carbonation, creamy, very smooth mouthfeel.

A real classic that I'm glad I'm finally getting to try for the 1st time.
