Picked this up mainly because dat bottle art. Poured into a bell tulip (as I regrettably don't have an OD glass as of yet), dark black with a creamy cap of tan head that retained as a thick ring and livened up with a quick swirl; nice lacing. Room temperature. Nose was more muted than I'd have expected, but still nice. Roasty aroma, coffee and dark malts, with a subtle touch of fruity esters, almost like Belgian yeast. Good roasty taste, dark malts, caramel, espresso, smooth but not too strong, bittersweet cocoa, mild sweet/fruity undertones, with just a hint of neutral alcohol...about right for a 9% brew. Body was on the fuller side of medium, mouthfeel was smooth, but not really what I'd call thick for the style. A good beer overall.

look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: faintly red, the next best to pitch black; brown beige head fading to substantial surface covering; intricate spidery lacing
S: woody, espresso, chocolate, slightly metallic, slightly syrupy
T: bitter, strong alcohol presence well-masked by the woody espresso
M: medium-bodied for a stout, alcoholic bite
O: A bit hollow for a stout, with an odd metallic nose. Quite decent.

12 oz bottle, dated 6/19/13

jet black, with thin off-white head that fades to just a ring around the glass. smells like black coffee. taste is bitter roasty coffee flavor, a touch acidic and ashy. slick, a bit oily mouthfeel. moderate carbonation.

overall - the coffee flavor is a bit too sharp and bitter. wouldn't seek out again.
