Pours deep brown/black. Nice big kahki head on this one. Spicey coffee wafts off the top like my morning stop for caffeine. Hints of bitter cocoa. Lacing present as the head recedes. Very nice all coffee flavor. Wow this is great. Almost like a cold cup of Joe here. Light to medium mouthfeel with low to medium carbonation. Right on what it should be. Very nice. Could drink this all night. Must pair this with food sometime.

Bottle from Siciliano's, 12oz into a tulip. Batch 11468, bottled Sept 10, 2012.

Dark brown, almost black with about three fingers of light brown head. Dense and creamy retention, great lace. Nose of fresh roasted coffee beans, earthy and herbal. Taste has a whole load of roast and more coffee beans. Still some earth notes and chalk. Perhaps even some dark chocolate. Palate is lighter than I'd like, body is disappointingly thin although it appears to full up as it warms. Roast lingers for quite some time. Coffee quite prevalent here, does well for a straight up coffee stout.
