Received in a trade.
A: Very dark brown/black. Looks like a cup of coffee. One finger of khaki head that is pretty tight around the edges. Nice lacing,
S: Wow! Big coffee. Backed by a strong roastyness and the sweet smell of the lactose. Small bit of bitter chocolate. Aroma is phenomenal.
T: Follows the nose dead on. Strong coffee and roasted malt with a bit of sweetness throughout from the lactose. Tastes like a dark roast coffee with a bit of milk in it.
MF: The only disappointment. Pretty thin, almost watery feeling, though not at all watery tasting. Not a bad mouthfeel, just wanted a bit more body for that 8% ABV.

Overall: Excellent beer. One of the better coffee beers I have had. Great breakfast beer!

Poured very dark brown. Head is also brown, it is a nice looking brew. Lots of rich, coffee goodness on the nose. Coffee with cream. Chocolates in the nose, too. Flavor is well advertised by the nose. Coffee with cream and some fudge flavor. Body isn't overly thick but the alcohol is very well hidden. Well carbonated. A tasty coffee themed brew.

Bottle.

This beer is a coffee onslaught. Pours thin, lucid, dark chestnut brown with some garnet shade. Nice as a breakfast beer or after dinner drink, and it is definitely on the dry side when it comes to stouts. Aroma of espresso dominates. Really light mouthfeel and the tan head doesn't impart much creaminess. Taste is reminiscent of a foamy cappucino. Some milk notes soothes the palate mid way, but the palate is decidedly roasted and charred coffee with some tarry notes. Some nutty flavor, almonds and bitter swiss chocolate are evident, but not well-integrated. The beer just seemed incomplete despite its strong and complex flavors. I'd order again and it's worth a go.
