A - black, dark as night.

S - coffee, coffee, and more coffee. Is this beer or coffee?

T - You guessed it. Tastes like coffee, especially in the beginning once the beer passes my lips. But after the initial coffee blast I sense a bit of chocolate, which is good because it makes the coffee less overpowering than it would have been. I am not big on coffee stouts, so the chocolate mellowing is a welcome taste.

M - heavy, thick, light carbonation

O - As others have pointed out, this beer is heavy on coffee. If you do not like coffee stouts, then stay away. If you enjoy coffee stouts, then you will love this beer.
