It is very very coffee forward. If you like coffee this is the beer for you.

Quality beer, but way too much coffee...for me, at least.

Nice dark brown pour with a 1 finger chocolate milk head.
This goes dark chocolate and freshly ground coffee for broke! Not particularly complex but really nails the coffee flavors, and the chocolate flavors are a nice backing. If you're a coffee stout fiend, this is something to seek out. If not, grab a bottle anyways, just know what to expect. Very delicious!
