I poured this into a snifter, it has a jet black body with not head but a real thin tan lace around the edge. The aroma of choclate and coffee beans come through nicely.
The taste has a burst of fresh brewed coffee flavor with a choclate coming after, i also pick up some roasted malt flavor. I don't detect any hops. The mouth feel is nice, well balanced, and rolls off the tongue very well, not to thick or to thin. Overall this is a a good coffee stout.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Almost completely black with some light getting through the edge showing garnet and good clarity. The long lasting, medium tan head is made of rocky foam.

S: My initial impression is that of coffee and cream with some chocolate and a small shot of Kahlua. It smells pretty good for a coffee beer which is promising. No hops aroma detected. A light fig fruitiness and some caramel malt aroma.

T: The taste is matches the nose with big time coffee and cream with a some chocolate and enough alcohol to give the impression of a short shot Kahlua. There is a light hops bitterness and no flavor hops. The balance is slightly to the sweet with a medium malt sweetness. The finish is off dry with a roasty bitterness and chocolate aftertaste.

M: A medium-full body with moderately-light carbonation. There is a light creaminess and a touch of alcohol warmth.

O: This is at the sweeter end of the American style but a very well done coffee stout.
This one would be great with dessert or at dinner with a coffee dust steak.

12oz bottle poured into pint glass

A- Dark black, minimal mocha head with virtually zero lacing. Head fades fast into a ring around glass.

S- Not a whole lot of coffee and chocolate which I was expecting. Subtle malt sweetness undertones.

T- Coffee, roasted malts, toffee and a tad bit of chocolate.

M- Medium bodied. Smooth and creamy up front and ends dry.

O- A decent beer. Not a whole lot of coffee flavor but the brew seems to be balanced nicely and is enjoyable.
