Thanks Loki for the opportunity.
Pours a thick opaque black with garnet struggling there at the edges. A finger's worth of dark coffee creamy head falls slowly. Lines of heavy foam stick to the edge of each sip before sinking beneath their own weight.
Aroma begins with dark fruits and chocolate... but then it arrives, strong bitter coffee. Dark strong diner coffee, not some sugared up single origin fancypants coffee. (I'll be getting my cup of estate grown Ethiopian in the morning...)
Flavor again starts with dark fruits and chocolate before the coffee kicks it. But it kicks in with style, dominating the latter part of the sip into the finish, which is nicely bitter.
Intensely creamy and thick, coats your mouth kind of thick. Low carbonation accentuates the creamy feel. Definitely my favorite aspect of the a very good brew.
This isn't just a hint of coffee stout. It's a greasy eggs and cheese grits coffee stout. Well worth seeking out.
While I love it, the ABV and palate wrecking coffee would probably keep me from going after a bomber. I love big beers in 12oz bottles.

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.
