A: Dark as a moonless sky. Cappucino colored thick head that leaves a big spiderweb lace.
S: Barley and malt, with big notes of coffee and walnut.
T: Big grain notes with coffee as a secondary flavor. Bittersweet chocolate and roasted crystal malt. Alcohol is there but not overwhelming. Hop profile is resin like and gives a good balancing bitter flavor.
M: Heavy body with low carbonation. Moderate bitterness.
O: A lot of people looked down on this beer, but i'd say it was one of the better coffee infused beers ive tried. A good stout, but again, underrated because its made by boston beer co. Not the best coffee american stout around but it fits the bill.
This is a desert beer, and a good pairing would be a mocha swirl cheesecake.

A: Pours a dark, black with a short lived dark tan head.
S: Very malty aroma with no hop aroma. Lots of dark fruit, raisin. good amount of chocolate and coffee. Some alcohol notes in the aroma.
T: Big burst of coffee and cream with a chocolate hit soon after with a bit of raisin. Black coffee makes up the bulk of the aftertaste with a mild black olive note . No hop flavor to speak of. The alcohol is hidden well and it has a slight acidic bite. Finishes dry.
M: Medium full body almost chewy with low carbonation.
O: This is a decent stout. Big coffee flavor but for me a little too big, It lacks something, perhaps a complexity that other stouts have. It's definitely a beer that I would have no problem sitting back with on a cold winter night.
