12 oz brown bottle with a bottled on date on the label. This stout is brewed with Kaldi's Coffee.
Head retention is fine, some good stickage on the glass. A shade lighter than pitch black the liquid is. Smells of mocha iced coffee with a hint of sweetness from the oats. Very smooth and creamy with a semi-slick mouth feel. Chocolaty roasted malt with a big tone of coffee flavor, mild hop bitterness. Finishes with a long lingering chocolate / coffee flavor.
Very tasty and balanced, and balanced is what I look for first in a coffee stout espsically if the acidity is too much which is not the case here. Paired well with a handful of chocolate cover espresso beans.

Pours a dark cola brown color with a small tight khaki colored head. The retention was quick and settled into a light ring.
The aroma is not particuliarly strong but does have a nice coffee scent. Nice cold coffee and coffee grounds aroma, good roast. The aroma is a nice earthy/woody scent.
Freshly ground coffee in the taste. Excellent flavor and not overly bitter. Subtle wood notes with a peaty type of flavor. The malt base is quite light and brings a tea like flavor, perhaps a note of lemon. A hint of caramel as well.
The feel is light to moderate with fizzy carbonation. Starts off sweet on the palate but has enough of a roasted bitter offset to balance. Perhaps a touch stick in the finish.
Very good coffee flavor; I enjoyed that very much. However, the stout base is lacking and more resembles a brown ale. Quite light for the style.
