A: Pours black with about a finger and a half of light tan head. The head quickly recedes into a thin cap with a little lacing.
S: Some dark roasted malt and coffee. It lacks the deep, rich roasted coffee aromas that I expect from the best coffee stouts.
T: Similar to the aroma, there is some roasted malt up front followed by the coffee. The aftertaste is slightly bitter and the coffee doesn't taste all that great.
M: Medium body and carbonation. The body is kind of watery and lacks the creaminess expected of an oatmeal stout is missing.
D: Goes down fairly smooth, but the lack of creaminess and watery body make it not entirely pleasant.
Overall, not a horrible beer, but there are far, far better coffee stouts out there.

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.
