Batch #66. 22 oz. bottle poured into a Founders snifter.
Appearance: Black with a very thin beige head dissipating almost immediately into a thin lacing.
Smell: Freshly brewed coffee. Vanilla makes a strong appearance. More coffee. A bit of caramel, cocoa, and a very slight touch of citrus hops. And more coffee. This is really all about the coffee, and it's damn good.
Taste: Wow. Intense, rich coffee flavor up front. One of the best pure coffee flavors I've ever experienced in a beer. Definitely vanilla in there along with caramel and some cocoa. Again, this is all about the coffee. And it's flat out incredible.
Mouthfeel: Heavy-bodied, medium carbonation. My only complaint with this beer is the carbonation level - I feel a lower carbonation level could be magical, but it's a minor complaint.
Overall: Phenomenal. Flat out phenomenal. If you're looking for a coffee stout that will punch you in the mouth with coffee, look no further.

This presented a glowing black appearance with a good stiff thick head that laced in a sheet.
The nose is a strong coffee and roast with a little chocolate but the coffee is pleasurable and simple.
The flavor is spicy with near raw habenero chilies. The coffee flavor then comes through with a dry smoky roast, chocolate malt and a peppy spiciness.
The feel is dry but velvety, smooth and easy.
This was a bit surprising as there was no mention of chilies, and I got huge spiciness, and a mention of vanilla, and I got none. None the less I loved it.
