I'm pretty sure this is my new favorite beer. Best coffee stout out there in my opinion, hands down.
A: Poured from bottle into Tiffany crystal beer mug. Black. Very very black. Thin tan head that quickly dissipates.
S: Coffee and hints of sweet chocolate. More coffee. Smells awesome. I can't keep my nose out of the glass. As good as it smells, I wish there were even a little MORE coffee aroma to it...and it's already pretty strong smelling of coffee.
T: DEAR GOD....it's awesome. Smooth, rich, blended coffee mixed with roasty malts and mild, sweet chocolate. I can't stop sipping it. I could probably chug it if I would let myself. Don't get much of the alcohol at all....but just enough to make it noticeable. Becomes a little sweeter with even more detectable coffee as it warms up.
M: Not too thick, not too thin. Just about right. If anything, I wish it were just a little bit thicker even. Not much carbonation.
D: Pretty good....I think I could probably do about 2 of these. I'd let myself do more but after 2 I think the alcohol content at 8.1 would probably start to numb my senses to the point that I wouldn't appreciate this beer as much and it is absolutely one that I want to appreciate and enjoy with every sip.
Overall an AWESOME beer and one that I can see myself enjoying for a long time to come! Side note: I also drank one aged over 1 yr on 12/26/11 and the coffee was still VERY present and highly enjoyable.

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.
