Pours a dense, tan head with nice lacing. Deep, rich toasted malt in the nose; big notes of coffee. Black. Acidic and bright, with toasted malt throughout. Builds into a medium floral hop bitterness. Finish is toasted malt throughout.

Overall, I like this. No coffee in it, but it tastes VERY much like it does have it. I wish it was a touch less acidic, and a touch MORE toasted malt.

a dark brown/black pour with a finger of head which actually gave off some nie lacing. nice head retention as well. smells of coffee beans rise immediately, followed by chocolate and a very nice roasted nut smell. the flavor is a very mellow and smooth blend of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, roasted grains, and macadamia nuts. medium in body with pretty low amount of carbonation.. feels a bit on the lighter side (watery).

overall, this is a solid beer. not sure if it's a seasonal or a year-round, but it's pretty damn good nonetheless. very subtle, but dead on as far as stouts.

Received an extra in a trade. Poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Poured a nice dark brown hue with a good one finger dark mocha head that slumped down to a light quarter blanket.

S - Aromas of good roasted malts, chocolate, and nice roasty black coffee. Very, very pleasant.

T - Taste is nice. Similar to the nose. Good bitter coffee notes, roasted malts, creamy chocolate notes. This is quite tasty.

M - Mouthfeel is creamy, lowly carbonated, but a bit thin. Not bad though

O - Overall A solid beer. Wish it was a bit thicker. Still, not bad though.
