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.

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.
