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.

A: Black color with a 1 finger tan head. The head has really uniform bubbles, which I always like. The head reduces but does not disappear. It stays as a thin white layer over the brew.
S: It smells like coffee. A robust coffee very powerful and pronounced.
T: Slightly bitter coffee. It is not a subtle hint of coffee - it is full on coffee flavor.
M: Nice balance of carbonation - smooth on the palate.
O: Too much of a good thing? This is like coffee with some stout thrown in. I am not a coffee drinker - but I like the smell of it. This would be a great breakfast stout. It is not one that I could drink more than one at a sitting.
