4.18/5 rDev -2.8%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a mug. 12/30/08. Vintage 2008.
Pours a very deep black with a thick brown head that quickly dropped to a thin layer, no lacing. Aroma is heavy with dark roasted coffee and roasted malt.
Taste is strong with dark roasted coffee and bitter dark chocolate. It is surprisingly sweet though - not cloying, just sweeter than expected, with less bitterness in the finish. There's a hint of fruit and cherries, with a lingering coffee aftertaste. The alcohol is well hidden. Very nice coffee taste, this score would be higher if it weren't for the slightly high sweetness.
Feel is thick, smooth, and creamy with plenty of carbonation. Slight warming from the alcohol. Coats the mouth nicely. Drinkability is pretty good. It's a bit heavy, not something I'd drink more than one or two of.
Overall, a very good coffee stout. Not my favorite, but very good. Try it if you like coffee and/or stouts.

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.
