"Hold on to your lugnuts....it's time for an oil change!"
A: CMS pours just an absolutely gorgeous inky, opaque darkness, as if a black hole sucking in nearby sunlight. *Impressive* two-finger thick layer of bubbly tan head lasts for an eternity, marking its territory with all sorts of lace.
S: Freshly ground coffee beans, chocolate squares, caramelized sugar, toasted malt. Well-balanced and very pleasing to the shnoz.
T: Lots of cafe mocha flavors, with some bitter hops thrown in for good measure. Middle sees the chocolate intensify, only to finish with a hefty dose of bitter chocolate and a hint of dryness.
M/D: Simply superb. Luscious mouthfeel, as if each individual tastebud gets fondled by this creation. Thick, rich, and creamy. Dryness only show up at the end, teasing you...knowing you want another sample of this. Let this one warm before you try it and you'll be rewarded with something special.
Huge, HUGE thanks to VLC for this one.

12 oz. bottle poured into a stout glass.
Appearance: Pours a near-black with very minimal tan head. No lacing. Looks dense.
Aroma: Smells of black coffee, toasted nuts, some dark fruits, raisins, and a good amount of dark chocolate. Nice bold, complex aromas.
Taste: Taste follows the nose, with dark chocolate and dark fruits leading the way. Alcohol isn't very noticeable. Some pretty good bitterness up front and on the finish. It gets slightly less bitter as it warms. Pretty classic dry stout flavors.
Mouthfeel: This is a big, thick stout. It's a sipper for me.
Overall: This beer has earned its reputation as a sought-after craft stout. Do yourself a favor and find it if you haven't. Bold flavors, good density, terrific aromas. Great stuff.
