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.

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.
