Poured from 330mL bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: entirely, completely, unremittingly black with a thick finger of creamy brown foam. There's a nice retention and a nice lace on the glass. Excellent.

Smell: rich, green aroma of coffee and sweet malt. That green element is quite big -- I'm getting something like aloe in there. It's rich and enticing.

Taste: rich coffee flavor without being acidic or acrid. A sweet, dark maltiness underscores this flavor with toffee, a little bit of chocolate, and plenty of ashy roastiness. There is a little bit of astringency at the end, along with a pretty strong bitterness. If you like coffee stouts, this will absolutely be for you.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and a decent creaminess. Good, although a little more smoothness would be nice.

Overall: I really like this beer. I don't know if it's worth all it takes to make, but it's a solid coffee stout.

Black with a thin, thin brown head.

Not much nose-wise but some coffee. Not bold, though.

Dark chocolate's the highlight for me. Right up it's rich and has that bittersweet finish. Coffee's not subdued, rather prominent. Alcohol's a tad hot. Rich. For the price, I'll still take the Espresso Yeti.

Thick but grainy and gritty, which is welcome.

A - Thick, almost black brew. Zero head when poured straight from the bottle. Lots of alcohol legs.

S - Alcohol right up front followed by chocolate, charred malts, and then a hint of coffee.

T - Lots of coffee. No alcohol burn, which was surprising for the aroma. Tastes of rich, black coffee. Finishes with sweet chocolate on the back of the tongue.

M - Very heavy, no carbonation, and lots of coffee after taste.

O - Love the idea behind this beer. Very drinkable for %10, but a very heavy price at $10 for a 12 oz. bottle.
