On tap at a Whole Foods in Washington, DC.

The beer is black as coffee with a thin lacing that is a dark khaki-color. Lacing is sticky and well-distributed around the glass.

The aroma is delightfully similar to a sweet coffee drink. Sweet caramel and coffee hit initially, followed by cream and sugar. The coffee aroma is a deep dark roast.

Everything the nose set me up for continues with the taste. The beer is like sweet, creamy coffee with milk. There's some dark roasted malt and coffee presence, as well as sweeter malt. I get hints of oak and barrel-aging, although I don't believe I had the BA version.

This brew was exceptionally thick and creamy, only slightly boozy, and finishes dry and coffee-and dark chocolate-like.

I'd known nothing about this beer before trying it and was just blown away. It's a real treat to discover a new beer and find that it is awesome.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A: 4.75 Pitch black with a one-inch tan head.

S: 4.5 Lots of earthy, dark roasted coffee at first. Roasted malt and chocolate come through next with a bit of vanilla and spice as well. The coffee is very nice and seems to be high quality.

T: 4.25 The flavor is nice, but not quite as good as much going on as the nose. A bit acidic at first followed by lots of coffee. Some of the vanilla and chocolate from the nose come through they seem more muted. The acidic seemed a bit much at first, but it also brings some present berry flavors with it.

M: 4 The carbonation is nice and makes the beer lively. However, the mouthfeel could be a bit thicker and more substantial.

O: 4.25 This is a very good coffee stout; better than most, but not excellent. The coffee flavor is well executed but the base beer could be a bit more solid (especially the mouthfeel).
