Mud. It has a flavor you would expect from the name but has lots of sediment to go with it.

Thanks @hophound!!
This pours a mahogany hue, lite glazed buttermilk biscuit head that quickly dissipates.
Smell is roasty, dark, dark, and did I say "dark" roast coffee.
Taste is defintely roasted coffee, but there is a peatiness undertone that reminds me of a traditional RIS. However...
The mouthfeel is lite. Noticably lite. This would be damned near a perfect coffee-forward espresso stout with a little more heft.
Finishis is liquidy, and lite. Coffee comes through as diluted at this point.
Overall, the nose and initial flavor are sublime. But the mid and finish just don't hold up. Worthy of a drink, but I ain't writing a love letter to this one.

Aroma is bitter coffee, malts and a hint of acidity. The flavor is coffee, mild chocolate, malts and a tangy/acidic finish.

Very dark, almost black, two finger tan head, with big bubbles, faded quickly to nothing, no lacing. Aroma was chocolatey and coffee, with some roasty malt notes, very little in the way of hop smells. Taste was rather subdued considering the aroma, with coffee dominating. Mouthfeel was very thin for the style. Overall, it was OK, nothing special, probably won't buy again, considering there's much better coffee stouts out there for the same price.
