12oz brown bottle with "Vintage 08" printed on "Best If Enjoyed Before" space.
Pour with a viscous looking cascading brown head and leaves a blanket of lacing behind which reaches all the way down to the bottom of the glass. Wow, smells of a cup of iced joe ... dark roast at that. Smooth and creamy with a lush full body. Big roasted flavors from the coffee and malt, lots of fresh coffee flavors and definitely that indie roasted coffee bean flavor. The roasted grain drops some charcoal and a faint smokiness on the palate. Slight warming alcohol with a hint of dark berry fruitiness. Minimal hopping lets the maltiness and coffee flavors run free. Finishes bitter sweet with a long after taste of coffee.
Best Coffee Stout to date for me ... more than enough roasted character to balance out the sweetness. An amazing beer here.

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.
