Black color with a thick thin head with short retention.
Aroma is predominantly true coffee with hints of powder milk in a distant 2nd place.
Flavor with notes of cold coffee, a bit of powdered milk, cola, random pieces of hard dark chocolate and some plum tartness. Dry aftertaste with a mild bitterness and a lingering roasted note.
Light body with appropriate carbonation of tiny bubbles. Not really creamy.
Bitter Sweet Stout that highlights natural roasted cold coffee notes and intensity. Easy drinking, but you got to like coffee.

Pours black with a brown head. Not much retention and no lacing.
Smells like straight up black coffee. Picking up a chili pepper like quality as well.
Taste is of milky semi sweet coffee. Coffee upfront with some chocolate in the middle. Finishes sweet.
mouthfeel is full bodied. Carbonation is somewhere in the middle. Not high but there.

The smell of coffee as you open the bottle and pours coffee black. It does have a strong coffee taste but not as strong as the smell of coffee. Smooth an creamy taste and finishes great

Bottle dated 10/04/17 into pint glass. Pours a deep mahogany with a thin light-tan head that dissipates quickly. Initial impression is a very smooth stout; starts with milk chocolate and a touch of coffee, but the coffee increases in intensity and bitterness. Very silky-smooth mouthfeel - a little on the thin side to suit me, though. Carbonation is light and doesn't interfere with the taste or smoothness. Finish is again very smooth, with a lingering expresso bitterness. Very enjoyable!
