Poured from 12 oz bottle into snifter.

A: Jet black with one finger tan head. Some nice lacing.

S: Coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts.

T: All coffee all the time. A bit of bitter chocolate and roasted malts, but the coffee notes are dominant here.

M: Full bodied with plenty of carbonation.

O: Easily one of the better coffee forward stouts that I have enjoyed. On par with Founders Breakfast Stout and Stone Espresso IRS.

2012 Release. Nearly black, slightly viscous pour with a deep, dark brown head. Jagged lacing and alcohol legs around glass.

Bitter-sweet, deep, dark roasted malts, roasted coffee, tobacco, figs, some sweetness, smoke, hint of booze.

Dark roasted coffee, roasted malt, molasses, subdued hops, bitter kick, with some alcohol.

Just enough body to hold up to the depth of flavor.

Awesome coffee stout, morning beer, imperial-oatmeal-whatever.

Thank you gford217 for this bottle!

Poured from a 12oz brown bottle with a vintage '08 stamp on the lable.
We are just a few days outside 2008, so I assume its still good.
Poured into an oversized snifter, semi-rigerously.
2 fingers of dark brown head formed after a delay off the pour, that was kinda cool.
Pitch black in color with zero light penetration. It looked pretty creamy off the pour. Minimal streaks of dark colored lace.

Aroma is sooo much pungeant dark roasted coffee and bit nutty creamy wiffs of peanut butter. Just a touch of chocolate...This could pass in aroma as a Reeses peanut butter cup.
Some chocolaty sweetness, but nothing in alcahol warming, nicely hidden.

Thick and smooth with a half and half like creamyness. This is a great mouthfeel right here.
A bit of carbonation up front quickly fading to all cream.
Tastes like an iced mocha heavy on the cream with more peanut butter. Its alot like DOAB from Tyranena with much less carbonation and more creamyness.
Starting sweet and coffee like with touches of chocolate and becoming uncreasingly nutty at the swallow. The finish is a lingering sweet flavor with nuts and more coffee. Slick like mouthfeel with a milk fat lingering heavyness on my tounge.

This is really really good. I need more of these, this is going back on the wants.
I'm very happy I got to try this beer, it was more then what I thought it would be.

A--Pours a pitch black with about a finger and a half of the darkest brown head that I have ever seen. The head darker than most brown ales. Impressive! It does recede quickly without lacing, however.

S--The deepest, richest coffee smell I've gotten from any beer. Lots of other coffee stouts have this "stong" of a smell, but none that I can remember have such a deep roasty smell, its hard to describe since I am not a coffee drinker. Definite 5, maybe even trumps the nose on Peche Mortel

T--Very similar to Founders Breakfast Stout, but without the bitter bite. Very tasty. There isn't much there other than the coffee, it's a mild blend with the slightest touch of creaminess. I actually wish I would have poured this a little colder than I did because it would be interesting to see how this progresses as it warms up. It was already up to probably 60 degrees when I started the pour

M--Medium bodied with a bit of creaminess and moderate levels of carbonation

D--Probably wouldn't want more than one due to the richness of the coffee flavor. But it is a great one-and-done beer.

Into a pint glass, pours a solid black color with a little head of dark tan color, not too much lacing. The aroma is rich, full, a lovely bit of full press coffee, chocolate, oatmeal, some roasted malt. The mouth is creamy smooth, slightly carbonated, smooooth and tasty. All these flavors and more bounce around the tongue, with the oats, roasted malt coming in, then coffee, then chocolate, the a slight bit of hop oils, the alcohol creeping in when warmer in the finish. Overall, a very fine beer. I'm almost jealous of you southerners. :)

Thanks to shuajw for this one.

I got the 2007 edition of this beer in the Bday '07 BIF from mikesgroove. I could smell this beer as I was pouring it into the pint glass. The rich coffee and chocolate aromas are amazingly potent and they draw me in. The taste is even better that the smell. As soon as the beer hits my lips I can immediately taste coffee just like the beer has been mixed with fresh brewed coffee. There is also a strong dark chocolate flavor that nearly equals the coffee flavor and a great roasted note. Almost as if they planned this in advance (wink wink), the smoothness of the oatmeal ties the strong flavors together and creates an amazing beer. The drinkability on this is awesome. I'm heading to Georgia soon and I'll be damn sure to bring several cases back with me.
