Pours very dark brown with a thin tan head that hangs on, leaving some lacing.

The smell is of fresh, robust coffee/espresso.

The taste is of deep roasted coffee/espresso with sweet dark chocolate. A bit of cream mixes in. Finishes with sweet malt, deep roast, and bittering, juicy hops all woven together, leaving a wonderful, lasting aftertaste.

It hits full-bodied and is silky smooth.

It's heavy with the coffee, yet not one-dimensional. A wonderfully complex, balanced, smooth brew. Very well-done! Exceptionally enjoyable!

I hate stouts, absolutely hate them. But, this beer was awesome! In full disclosure, I just opened a 2012-2013 Coffee Stout that I had stored in my beer refrigerator since last season. It didn't miss a beat. I don't drink coffee anymore, but this beer has the perfect mixture of coffee flavor and beer qualities. They didn't over-do the "coffee-ness" like so many other brewers do when making a coffee beer. I enjoy almost all NG beers, especially their fruit beers. I like to think they are the best at flavored beers in general, and their normal beers aren't far behind. Cheers!

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours lighter bodied black. Three fingers head with nice retention.

Aroma is quite understated. Mild coffee and roast.

Taste is a very easy drinking coffee and roast flavor. A sugar cookie type sweetness is also apparent.Flavor is more pronounced than the nose but still quiet subtle.

Medium mouthfeel and carbonation.

Certainly not the most aggressive coffee stout.
