Pours black with a finger of khaki foam. Head retention is okay. Aroma is big ol' roasty coffee that comes off bold, oily, and acidic, as if it was brewed in a French press or cold steeped with no paper filtration. Beyond the bold and thick coffee is roasty, toasty malts, a little bit of char, and chocolate. Flavor profile is much more decadent and smooth, hitting notes of roasty, toasty, nutty malts, dark and milk chocolate, lactose, and big-bodied, bold coffee, again - tasting like cold brew. Think coffee from Surly's Coffee Bender or Mother's Winter Grind. Nice kisses of molasses and caramel sweeten up the flavor profile a touch further, while continuing the focus on roasty, toasty malts and bold coffee. Mouth feel is nearing on a decadent velvetiness straight out of the fridge, but warms to a nice decadent, velvety texture. It has a medium-thick consistency. Overall, aroma is a bit earthy, biting, and a touch too bold, but the flavor profile really locks it in here, delivering a tasty coffee brew steeped with complexity and deliciousness.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 16oz can.

Pours ink black with a slight brown head. A lot of fresh coffee on the nose. Feels very smooth, not thick for a 9% stout but certainly not thin, good for a coffee stout. Taste is excellent, roasty and lots of good coffee notes. Overall, glad this found its way into my hands, really an excellent coffee stout.
