Had this on 2010-10-02 in Columbia, PA. This is my 200th review.

A - Dark brown with a two-finger, tan head

S - Dried plums, mild roasted grain and mild licorice.

T - Not my cup of tea. Initial sour mash followed by sour rotted fruit, metallic, meat, then dried plum sweetness and significant bitterness.

M - Light body and medium carbonation

D - I'll pass on this one.

A= The pour is a moderate dark color. Clearly transparant when held to the light and even when not it has some ruby edges on it. The head is a nice perfect two fingers high with thick rocky foam on top of it. The heads color is an off white not quite tan color.

S= Nice piney hop profile to it. Not much in the fruity hop department at all mostly just piney hops. The roasty character comes through a little in the nose but not much. A little bit of sweetness makes itself present.

T= The taste is really intense coffee flavor. More coffee than hops by far. The hops do make themselves present but not nearly as much as the coffee and roast malt. I'm a person who believes there is a difference in the CDA and a hoppy stout. This is just a hoppy stout. It doesn't have the balance it should.

M= This is actaully pretty good. Velvety and creamy.

D= Not a bad beer but I would venture out to say that it doesn't fit the style very well.
