Decided to do some waking and slaking today.
A: Pours a very dark brown, similar to dark coffee, and looks nice and viscous.
S: Dark, rich coffee grounds. Very reminiscent of founders, but not as strong. I do pick up a bit of oatmeal which is nice.
T: Starts off with strong coffee notes but sans bitterness. Continues through the middle where the bitterness comes in, perhaps with a little oatmeal.
M: More carbonation at the start than I'd like, though perhaps that plays a factor in keeping some of the bitterness out?
D: Very high. Rich but not overpowering flavors and not too much bitterness.
This is a delightful coffee stout for some who does not like the bitterness that usually comes with one. I had a small coffee stout tasting last weekend with some stars (Founders, Peche Mortel, etc), but I think I like this better.

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.
