Big thanks to NCVBC for this one in a recent trade! One of the fastest trades I've done in awhile as it took less than a week. Anyway, on to the review....
A-It pours a beautiful dark brown/black with a nice looking dark rich brown cocoa colored head puffs up about an inch or more. Looks thick... Cola colored edges when held up to the light.
S-Coffee, dark chocolate, and a sweet smell like a dark fruit... fig perhaps.
T-Creamy taste on the initial sip... followed by a mildy astringent coffee ground mixed with dark chocolate. A drying almost earthy mix in there as well...The final finish of the taste is a sweetness almost like the remnants of a chocolate chip going down.
M-Well carbonated, thick and decently creamy. Got a good thickness to this one....
D-While I like it alot, the thickness and richness on this one would probably prevent me from having more than a couple in a row. This is a treat meant to savored anyway.
It reminds me alot of a local brew, Devil Made Me Do It which is one of my favorites. My first Terrapin beer and I'm really glad I got a chance to try this one!

Appearance: Pours a nice black with short dark brown head. Leaves good lacing
Smell: Coffee, chocolate, nice roasted malts
Taste: Again, coffee and chocolate up front. There are some great roasted malts in here. Light earthy hops. Little bit of fruityness
Mouthfeel: Full body, creamy feel, low carbonation
Overall: Fantastic brew, one of the best coffee stouts out there. Reminds me a bit of drinking iced coffee black, but way better.

One of my top 3 stouts, this is absolutely superb.
a: Pours a beautiful warm dark coffee color with a single finger vanilla head that dissolves smoothly.
s: Roasted coffee, chocolate, and toffee with a wisp of alcohol to balance the ensemble.
t: Beautiful rich coffee goodness, with a rich, sweet, creamy, malted chocolate finish. Insanely beautiful.
m: Bold and big.
