The first time I had this beer, I was already drunk. As a coffee lover, I'm pretty sure I would have given it 5 stars all around at that time. However, I recently bought this and brought it to a friend's house for a night of drinking games, and it wasn't quite how I remembered it when I was sober. It's still really freaking delicious, don't get me wrong, but it seriously tastes like a mocha latte. There is a lot of complexity left to be desired while drinking this beer, and it can get you really messed up really fast if you aren't careful, because it seriously just tastes like an expensive coffee drink.

Pours dark as night withcreamy one finger tan head. Smell is roast and some chocolate. The taste is roasted malt, coffee beans and dark chocolate with a thin mouthfeel. Many Souts will improve as the warm, but this one actually loses a little luster. Overall, pretty good, but not a great Stout.

Bottle > Pint Glass

A - Dark brown black with under a finger of tan fizzy head, tiny spots of lacing.
S - Rich dark chocolates, roasted malts, roasted coffee beans, a touch of vanilla bean.
T - Rich creamy and milky mocha flavor, lots of dark chocolate, coffee bean roasts, a little toffee malt.
M - Creamy and smooth at first, but fades fast.
O - Excellent display of a good coffee stout, could benefit from a little more sweetness and alcohol to make the flavor linger more, cause it is a welcoming taste.
