A: Dark ruby-tinted brown, with a small but dense head of tan foam.
S: Roast and black patent malt.
T: Roast is not as strong as I was expecting, but it's certainly a major flavor component, balancing out the natural sweetness of the beer. It's also lightly chocolately with a latte like flavor.
M: very smooth and creamy.

Have seen this in stores for a long time. Here goes:

A: Good. Pours a dark black with an ample head and decent lacing. No light gets through this beer.

S: Good, but nothing special. Smells of coffee beans and some chocolate. A pretty malty beer with no hop aroma. Just like a regular stout.

T: Taste follows the nose. Some chocolate and caramel giving way to plenty of bitter coffee in the aftertaste. Lactose sugar in the beer imparts a creaminess that softens the bitterness, however.

M: OK - somewhat watery.

O: A good beer with some flaws. Enjoyed the flavor but it was rather simplistic.
