4.18/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance-
Good void factor of complete darkness. Thing faded tan head.

Smell-
A creamy vanilla floats in the back of a peppery coffee smell I have come to associate with the coffee stout genre.

Taste-
A sweet vanilla meets you at the tip, and then a bold coffee flavor follows. These two flavors dangerously mask most beer and alcohol taste. Is that a good thing? Depends on the person, but I am enjoying it.

Mouthfeel-
Slick and oily until the the astringent coffee bitters help clear the coating and leave a rich aftertaste.

Overall-
This coffee stout is unique, in that I do not taste the aforementioned pepper like any other I have tried. As previously mentioned, it really is all coffee in flavor.
