Pours an opaque brown with dark red highlights to it. Very dark coloring, very close to black in many ways, however in light one can see the Creates a sizable head to it, which dissipates over time.
Head gives a bit of a cinnamon scent to it. Taste automatically gives one the mix of coffee flavor along with the dark roasted barley. Very good balance between the malt and the coffee. This is a stout, no doubt, but it doesn't want to be a full fledged coffee stout. It rides a fine line between a thing accenting something and being it's full body.
This beer is smooth, it has a great body, and hits my soft spot for a coffee stout. And for $10 a six pack, it would make a welcome appearance to anyone's night. Excellence.
