Black as night with a foamy mocha head, this coffee stout was as visually appealing as it was delicious. A real pleasant surprise. The nose was fairly subtle, with teasing hints of coffee brittle. The taste was the real winner here with a complex variety of coffee, cacao, anise, toffee, nut, and huge mouthfuls of rich molasses. Not as thick, viscous, and mealy as expected. This one could easily sneak up on you...it goes down VERY easy for a beer with 9.3 ABV.

look: 3.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

750 mL bottle poured into a mini pint glass.

Appearance - Dark brown, almost black. Nice lacing. Thick collar and some wisps.

Smell - Ouch. Grassy raw coffee. Sweet malts. Harsh coffee.

Taste - Worse. Like watered down coffee. Very raw and green coffee flavor with a characteristic acidity. Just a bit of chocolate malt to back it up.

Mouthfeel - A little acidic. Even some booze. Bitterness.

Overall - Had this twice and neither time has it been good. Just a crappy coffee flavor.
