4.15/5 rDev +2%
Pours super thick dark black in color with a good one and a half finger dark tan head that retains nicely. No light makes it through this beer.
Smell is great. Rich cocoa aromas forward before more chocolate malt and a small amount of coffee come into play. Very mild vanilla aromas are present along with a slight tang that is hard to categorize.
Taste is also really good. Chocolate malt is forward ad much more dominate then in the nose. There is a slight roasted flavor before some very faint coffee flavors come in with mild cocoa also there. Mild roasted bitterness in the finish.
Mouthfeel is great. Huge body, mild carbonation. Great creamy feel and mild bitterness, this is a really smooth sipping beer.

Very dark brown, far from the "black as night sky" claim. Little head and looks viscous.
Tons of vanilla in the front of the nose, also a hefty dose of coffee. It has a strong aroma, but basically is comprised of those two.
The taste is majority coffee, then that vanilla. Dark roast malt, light Hershey syrup.
Soft but thick body. Smooth. Low carbonation.
It's a two trick pony, but both tricks are done well. It drinks easy for an impy. If coffee's your thing, give it a ride.

4.06/5 rDev -0.2%
Poured from 22 oz bomber into snifter.
A: Pours pitch black with one finger mocha colored head that settled fairly quickly to a thin ring around the edge.
S: Espresso and roasted malts with subtle chocolate and vanilla notes.
T: Rich roasted malts embedded with strong black coffee. Bitter sweet dark chocolate and a touch of vanilla.
M: Full bodied with a creamy texture but a slightly dry finish.
O: Very enjoyable coffee stout. I would love to get ahold of a barrel aged version of this one. I think a bourbon influence would fit in nicely.
