Appearance is black opaque with light brown head. Head had a little staying power to it.
Aroma is coffee with some dark sweet.
Taste is more complex than the aroma. Malt upfront with a lot of nice dark coffee notes. Cream comes through as well and ends with a slight dryness. It transitions between coffee and cream throughout tasting nicely.
Mouth feel is pretty smooth. Light carbonation and ends nicely on the tongue.
Overall, a very good stout. Not too dry and not too overpowering in one element(coffee or creamy). Comes off as well balanced between the two.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. From notes, because internet outage.

A: Pours a very dark brown color and a one finger head of mocha (lol) shade. The head's texture looks like similar to whipped cream on top of espresso (wut), and its retention is pretty good, too. A creamy ring of lacing is left on the glass.

S: There a some nice - if subtle - black coffee notes emanating from the glass, but what makes it quite good is how well the supplemental notes of cream and vanilla blend with the coffee. Not only does it take the edge off, but it creates a nice dessert quality. Really nice if rather simplistic.

T: Coffee hits the palate first, turning into a more general roasted note shortly after. The finish is creamy and vanilla-y, with a faint touch of confectioner's sugar. All in all, it's a decently balanced coffee stout: the blend between the sweet and roast works well, but I could always use a bit more coffee.

M: A bit on the thin side. Carbonation is also somewhat strong. Other than that, it's neither too sweet nor too dry. Having said that, it isn't eminently chuggable like some coffee stouts can be. Still don't care.

O: A solid coffee stout. While it isn't the most exciting, it's still a nicely balanced example of the style. I could easily drink this again, and even buy it again.
