Thanks to ThickNStout for this long-time want. Pretty excited to finally try this one. Pours fairly thick with about 1 finger of deep brown head.
Smells like a pot of cooled coffee followed by chocolate. Some subtle alcohol notes are in there as well.
The taste starts with a big coffee bitterness followed by some chocolate sweetness. Then finishes bitter again.
Full mouthfeel, light carbonation. Pretty much spot on for an 8% coffee stout.
I would be glad to wake up to this beer any time.

4.1/5 rDev -4.7%
12oz bottle poured into a glass. Vintage 2012
A: Pours a very dark brownish black with a half finger dark tan head. Some visible carbonation visible. Not really any lacing.
S: Coffee, roasted malt, almost a peppery spice to this as well.
T: Quite a balanced beer. Coffee isn't as strong as anticipated. More of a roastiness and dark fruitiness. Oatmeal in there as well as chocolate. Alcohol is well hidden. Decent bitterness from the hops.
M: Very smooth full body with a creamy mouthfeel. On the low end of carbonation. Clean finish. Very easy drinking.
Overall a real tasty brew that I think may be better a little closer to its season. I know coffee is a flavor that tends to fade with time and I think that has happened with this beer.

3.25/5 rDev -24.4%
Appearance: Dark brown/black with a nice dark tan head. The head dissipates a little too quickly.
Smell: Mainly molasses, burnt toast, sweet toasted nuts.
Taste: Coffee with a shot of blended molasses, raisins, & PGA.
Mouthfeel: Perfect for a stout. Thick, rich, chewy, foamy.
The beer is too rich and alcoholic to my system to enjoy. A lot of people will love this beer but I'd have to water it down to have a chance to enjoy it more.
