Look: Deep, oily black with a thick tan head.

Smell: Bittersweet roasted coffee and chocolate, oatmeal, and roasted malt.

Taste: Heavy roasted bitterness, like black coffee. Slight sweet chocolate and milk tones. Doesn't actually taste as bitter as 60 IBU would suggest.

Mouthfeel: Surprisingly only average thickness, with decent carbonation.

Overall: Decadent and powerful.

It doesn't matter what time of year, which glass, or what my surroundings are. This is a wonderful stout! Just the right blend of coffee and chocolate. Truly decadent!

Truly a revelation for me, as I somehow had it in my head I didn't like "coffee" stouts... how wrong I was. Pours a viscous, deep coffee-black; even the generous, fluffy head that forms is the color of chocolate milk. The smell is truly delicious, with aromas of black diner coffee and roasted chocolate. You immediately taste the richest, most delicious black coffee you've ever had in your life, along with premium dark chocolate flavors and a touch of raisin. Full body and creamy mouthfeel with a semi-sweet finish. Absolutely phenomenal.
