Glass Used: Tumbler
Appearance: A deep dark brown with a finger thick tan head. Lacing is minimal; a thin film of foam seals the surface.
Smell: A dark roast black coffee aroma fills the nostrils. I get some roasted malt characteristics as well. A lot of roast going on here.
Taste: Tastes like malted ice coffee. Not too heavy but the coffee is the star here. If you like the flavor of iced black coffee, with a hint of sweetness, then this beer is for you. The finish leaves a slight bitterness associated with a stout.
Mouthfeel: Creamy up until mid palate where it gets a bit thin in the finish. It's rather pleasant. Medium carbonation.
Overall: This is a great black coffee stout. I get sweetened iced black coffee during the Summer so this is right up my alley. Recommended if you like those flavors.

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.
