A: Very dark, nice 2" tan head with great retention and lacing.

S: Pronounced coffee smell with roasted and sweet malts

T: Light coffee, some chocolate milk, burnt toast.

M: Kind of thin, not too carbonated.

O: Its a decent coffee stout but I would have like to have seen a fuller body and more complexity in the taste and aroma.

A: Dark as a coffee stout should be

S: You smell coffee, not hints of coffee, but actual coffee. This is one of the best traits of this beer

T: Tastes like a nice smooth and dark blend of coffee and dark malts, its really a match made in heaven

M: Just as it should be, not too carbonated

O: This is my favorite everyday stout. I love the coffee taste so if that is not your thing, this beer is not for you. If you are looking for a good coffee stout, try this beer and you won't be disappointed, it is what it says it is.
