12oz bottle served in a pint glass.
pours a deep mahogany tone while yielding a foamy / frothy 1" tan head. middling retention and lacing.
no shocker, the nose is headlined by a strong roasted coffee presence. which is enticing, even if a bit one-dimensional in that regard.
flavor follows the nose with coffee notes in spades. there are some secondary notes of roasted malt and, to a lesser degree, chocolate. very muted though, clearly the coffee is front and center with this beer. medium bodied mouthfeel with average carbonation.
overall, a very enjoyable stout - more so, obviously, if you love coffee. not the best i've had but i would certainly not be averse to more.
