This one of my wife's favorite beers. Even though this one is readily available in almost any beer store in the area, I got this sixer from the brewery in Harrisburg last week.
A: Dark, dark brown, with absolutely no head.
S: I know the brewery website says that the coffee is very subtle, but that is really all I'm smelling right now. Because the name is what it is, that is not a bad thing.
T: I detect Troeg's hop profile right away. Ahhh! I love the coffee taste. We're not talking Maxwell House here, but something very special. Despite the brewery stating that they used Kenyan coffee beans (from a local coffee house) with "roasted espresso." I'm surprised at how non-roasty it actually is. I taste more cocoa-like flavor. Also, the cascade really bumps you at the end. Nice!
M: Here is where the oats kick in! Very thick, almost slimy texture. That may not be some people's thing, but I dig it!
D: 7.5 ABV? I didn't even notice. I like the flavor, texture, and just about everything about this beer. I'll buy this again!

12oz bottle served in a Prairie Teku
Thanks to Yoshi Optimator for this one.
A - Dark brown body with dense mocha head leaving specks of lacing.
S - Cold coffee, chocolate, raisins, molasses, roasted.charred caramel.
T - Nice cold roasted coffee presence, charred caramel and molasses malts, chocolate covered raisin. A strong core of dark bready malt, creamy and decadent. Finishes with strong malts, raisins, and fading coffee.
M - Full bodied, thick, creamy and viscous body, low carbonation.
Good coffee presence with a stout and creamy body. The raisin/plum plays well and adds a creative layer. Nice creamy texture, this went down very smooth.
