Appearance: A fudge brown color with ruby highlights; the tannish head was somewhat smaller than expected but still left a lot of lacing behind

Smell: Not sure that I have ever smelled coffee aromatics on a beer like this one - really nice

Taste: A touch of roast and a hint of chocolate and then the coffee takes over, relentlessly; the finish has a touch of bitterness and smoke that adds complexity

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A bit lighter in the body than I would expect from a stout and the brewery doesn't call this a stout on their webpage, either; it's more of an American Black minus the hops and plus the coffee

Thanks, DaftPatrick, for the opportunity

Thanks to Jeff for this one. 12oz can into a Founders snifter.

Pours a rich, .5 finger mocha colored head with good retention. Beer is pitch black. Lacing is stringy with good stick. Solid.

Nose is mocha, chocolate, cocoa and roasted malt. Delicious. This is what I want my coffee to smell like. Aromatic, deep and very robust.

Opens coffee, mocha, chocolate, liquorice and cocoa. Some roastiness in the middle but for the most part, the same flavor profile throughout. Great balance of coffee bean bitterness and a bit of chocolatey sweentness. Finishes a touch grainy with big coffee bean notes. Holy moly, this is fantastic!

Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Slightly prickly in the mouth and dry and a bit resiny going down. Messy finish with a lingering aftertaste. Super drinkable.

If you like iced coffee and coffee beers... and I don't mind beers brewed with coffee, I mean beers that taste like straight up morning Joe, then this is a can't miss. Really outstanding!
