Poured from a Pint can into a Pint glass, jet black with a small creamy head which left solid lace rings as things went on. It has a sweet smell like a sweet/milk stout with hints of coffee followed by a chocolate candy whiff at the end...nice really. Taste was sweet coffee with a dark roast background and a little dark chocolate mixed in, smooth and creamy mouthfeel makes it work well together as an American Stout with coffee flavor...Overall I think this is a solid offering and I'm glad I picked it up...also very happy I have 3 more Pints to enjoy later. I like Stouts and Porters a lot and when I find a solid one I have no problem saying so...4 Pints at $ 9.50...count me in!

Pitch black body and crowned by the weakest head I have ever seen - it had all but vanished within seconds of pouring. Mild sediment is noticable. No lacing.
What aroma? Faint notes of coffee and chocolate can be found if you're willing to invest the time and effort.
About as lifeless as aroma. Coffee is the only real flavors, and it's a decent flavor, I just wish it was more vibrant, richer. Cola towards the end. Light bitterness. Unfortunate aftertaste.
Thin and watery. No detectable carbonation.
I love coffee. I love beer. Should be a match made in heaven, right? Unfortunately it falls short of good in every aspect. I grabbed this in Minnesota, where Surly is available, and I find myself regretting the decision... I should have just stuck with Surly's Coffee Bender - You should too.
