Just to get bias out of the way quickly, this is my favourite beer. That being said, the flavour it unique. Oatmeal stouts, I feel, are soothing (for lack of a better term). Nonetheless, the coffee itself is noticeable and to those of you who are fans of coffee and a nice beer, this is certainly I suggest trying. It's brownish in its colour and its taste is superb.

Great color. Pours a light brown with a light caramel head. Smells of malty deliciousness with coffee overtones. Drinkable despite the 8.3%. Awesome mouthfeel... Would drink this again

Great coffee aroma. The body was alot lighter than I expected but still pleasant as it didn't over power the beer.

Iced coffee in the winter! Great flavor and color. Aromas of coffee and chocolate. Light in body. Flavor carries through from beginning to a long aftertaste. Could drink all day if the ABV were lower.
