Thick Light mocha head on a dark brown/black body that sticks around for awhile. Looks great. A swirl leaves a bunch of clump lacing.

Dry robust coffee smell.

Roasty, robust..."nutty", almost woody. Hard to believe this is 12%abv.

OMG. One of the best mouthfeel my mouth has ever felt. Sooo luscious, creamy, frothy, smooth. Perfectly carbed, perfect overall.

Simply put, the smell and taste are good but the mouthfeel is the real winner of the show. So creamy and smooth. Thanks for sending it this way kojevergas!

Draft at AleSmith.

Pitch black and opaque with a one finger beige head that quickly settles into a thick, lasting ring.  Good retention considering the style and ABV with streaks of soapy lacing left behind.

Absolutely ridiculous nose on this beer.  Tons of perfectly roasted gourmet coffee along with lactose cream, condensed milk and sweet fudge-y chocolate malt.  Deeply roasted with tons of coffee character but never approaches smelling burnt or acrid.  Holy shit this beer smells good!  

Medium bodied with slight viscosity and really nice roasted black coffee/espresso bean flavor countered by sweet lactose creaminess and dessert like chocolate malt.  Burnt toast and robust gourmet coffee flavor with oatmeal and bittersweet dark chocolate. That lactose presence is really, really nice and is very reminiscent of the condensed milk on the bottom of a cup of Vietnamese coffee.  Well balanced but still roasty as hell.  Delicious beer that perfectly captures the elements of Vietnamese coffee without taking away the stout characteristics of the base beer.  Highly recommended!
