A-Black in the glass, with a one finger creamy light tan head. However it seems more of a dark brown than black.

S-Lots of coffee and roasted malt

T-Starts with coffee and roasted malts. Finish has decent and balanced bitterness.

M-Medium bodied but a little thin and lacking in carbonation.

O-A decent beer, however as it warmed more of it's flaws came out.

A - Pitch black with very little head

S - Funky coffee smell with some chocolate

T - Well balanced between hop bitterness and coffee flavors

M - A little thin for a stout and pretty highly carbonated.

O - A tasty beer I would definitely try again. I feel like its hard to make a bad coffee stout. I think the carbonation could be stepped back a bit though.

Received in trade from Hudak, thanks man! Poured from bottle dated 10/26/2011 to a pint glass. The beer pours a deep black color with deep brown edges when held to light. A nice 1.5 finger thick brown head with good retention and lacing throughout. The nose consists of a pleasant blend of espresso and coffee tones. A hint of malty sweetness on the back end. The flavor begins with a roasted coffee flavor along with hints of chocolate malt and vanilla smoothness. Mildly bitter. Finishes smooth. No hint of alcohol. Creamy. Overall, this was extremely enjoyable. Another beer I wish I had access to more often. I would recommend.

This was from a 24 pack I found at Brewsky's of New Oxford. They never seize to amaze me with their selection.

Look: Poured a super black viscous color with a thick 1 finger of mocha brown head. The head reduced to a thin consistent layer of foam.

Smell: Robust coffee notes with a sweet lactose sugary backbone. Also there were some sweet notes of brandy soaked oats.

Taste: First was a creamy vanilla with roasted coffee bean to follow. The middle was slightly bitter with a pleasant coffee astringency. The finish was an unsweetened baking chocolate with an alcohol warmth that coated the entire mouth. Finish was an earthy coffee bean with a roasty note dominating the aftertaste.

This is a phenomenal Stout. The oatmeal really adds substance to the complexity.
