Appearance - Pours a thick dark color with some mild head. Does look red on the outside somewhat--very uniform throughout.
Smell - Amazingly chocolaty, some sweet notes, hints of malt, coffee.
Taste - Reminds me of the SA cream stout, yet distinct. The thick roasted coffee finish is the best part about this beer (not bitter at all finish). I would also have to agree with a lot of the other readers that there is no distinct taste to it--theres a concoction of many notes, yet none overwhelm you with the exception of the coffee aftertaste.
Drinkability - This is a pretty drinkable brew. Not something you can get drunk of because of the flavors, but this is definetely enjoyable amongst friends.
