12oz brown bottle with "Vintage 08" printed on "Best If Enjoyed Before" space.

Pours an inky visous ooze that didn't look like it was forming any head at all. I slowed the pour to a trickle and elevated the bottle about 12 inches away from the glass pouring directly into the middle. I got a two-fingered, dark brown head that mostly receded in a short amount of time. Like Spinal Tap's "smell the glove" album cover, there are 'none more black.'

Aroma is very roasty and full of premium coffee. There's a big chocolate presence also. Very well rounded and full smell. By far the best smelling coffee stout I've ever smelled.

Taste is coffee at full throttle. This appears to have a higher coffee to beer ratio than any beer out there. Either that or the flavors blend that well. You can certainly taste the malt and hops but the coffee takes the lead. Not nearly as bitter as many imperial stouts, let alone ones with java in them. Alchohol is well hidden.

Mouthfeel is medium-full and resembles coffee with full carbonation. It's well attenuated and dry with bitterness and not too hot from the booze.

This beer is world class and highly recommended.

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.
