From 11/14/15 notes. 22 oz. bottle purchased for $12 at Top Hops that day in NYC. Poured into a snifter.

Pours a dark brown, almost black color, with two inches of dark tan head and moderate carbonation evident
Coffee, milk, vanilla, cream, roasted malts, bitter dark chocolate, and milk chocolate. Medium body and low carbonation, super smooth and creamy.

Overall I thought this was really good; I'll buy it all the time if I can find it on the shelves.

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of strong dry bitter coffee notes with some roasted malt is dominant. Taste is also dominated by strong dry coffee notes that also veered into astringency territory. Some black chocolate notes are also perceptible. Body is about average with nice level of carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Not bad but coffee notes are almost too powerful for the overall balance of this beer.
