I tried this beer at the brewery. It poured an opaque black with tan head that did not leave any lace. The scent is coffee. The taste is coffee. The Mouthfeel is lighter in body with subtle carbonation. Overall it's ok.

Appearance - The beer was brownish black with a mocha color head.

Smell - The nose brings to mind a freshly opened can of coffee grounds.

Taste - The beer is highlighted by notes of coffee grounds and baker's chocolate. The sense of this beer is very dry. The finish leans far more bitter than sweet.

Mouthfeel -The feel is almost too smooth for an oatmeal stout. It seems more like a milk stout.

Overall - I would have like more sweetnees in this one.

Served in a pint glass at the brewpub. From notes. Reviewed 23 November 2014.

Black. Impenetrable. Mocha-colored head.
Immense coffee in the nose. Intense, super-dry, and rich. Dark chocolate. This is great!
Mmm, tasty but not immensely so. Lamentably thin, with a cold coffee neutral finish. Still worthwhile, especially for coffee lovers. Some lightly sweet malt.
Drinkable (more so than many coffee beers) and tentatively recommended.
