Looks like well worn motor oil, a brown tinged blackness in my mug. Nice two finger tan head, like espresso crema, with decent retention, but settles to leave a thin tan collar. Mildly carbonated. Not really leaving much for lacings, the intricate patterns succumb to gravity and return to the collar from which they came.
Nice aroma of creamy nougat and rich coffee aroma with just a hint of roasted malts, a whiff of smoke and earthy hops. This smells like a coffee stout for coffee fans. Im liking it.
The roasted malts make more of an appearance in the taste versus the aroma, otherwise things pretty much taste as above. The char of the roasted malts show up in the finish with a hint of anise. Very nice, clean coffee flavour here, reminding me of Coffee Bender, another coffee forward brew i really enjoyed.
Almost medium bodied, smooth, almost velvety, and slightly creamy. There is a very nice balance struck between the rich and nougaty malt, the tasty coffee, the more roasted malt and earthy hoppiness.
This is a damn tasty brew, and worthy of its reputation. Has me Jonesing for a peruvian morning.... Im not sure of the ABV, the alcohol is hiding from me, making this dangerously drinkable. Thanks to the wife for picking this up for me at the end of last summer, this is a top notch coffee stout that i would highly recommend to afficionados of coffee and coffee stouts. I will have to track this, and other Central Waters offerings, down.

Thanks yet again to Andrew for the bottle.
Pours jet black, ring of off white head, no lace to speak of. Smell is of coffe and roast, chocolate both of the milk and dark variety, not a lot more going on but still a seemless blend of coffee, roast and chocolate. Taste is of coffee and roast, faint bit of char, chocolate, moderate bitterness throughout coming from both chocolate and hops, ashy/char/roast aftertaste. Lightly carbonated, medium full body. A great coffee stout that should be held in the same regard as Peche Mortel and FBS, something I would very much like to revisit again.
