Received from zimmerbloke in my Birthday BIF box. Thanks, Matt!

Poured into my New Belgium globe. Pours a clear, dark brown, with a tan head of about two fingers that is slow to drop. Leaves some nice lacing.

Aromas of chocolate covered cake doughnut. I don't know, just my first impression. Lots of milk chocolate, roast coffee, and roasted malt. No real hop aromas.

Flavors of a mocha cafe, tons of roasted coffee, bittersweet cocoa. Finish is long, roasted, with bittersweet coffee that lingers.

Mouthfeel is huge, chewy, silky smooth, creamy.

Overall a fantastic beer. It's like dessert in a glass. A scoop of ice cream would be a great finishing touch.

A: pours a nice dark rich brown, practically brown. lightly creamed coffee colored head with a low retention rate and nice light lacing.

S: wonderful roasted malt aroma, dark chocolate, huge roasted coffee notes. light sweetness of cherries.

T: outstanding flavor. big roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, like a mocha coffee drink with some espresso. wonderful balance with the hops. great coffee notes here with the fair trade coffee. aftertaste is pure coffee and chocolate.

M: full bodied, but not too thick. mild carbonation level. amazing palate. extremely smooth.

D: outstanding brew. great flavored stout. this shouldn't be a want once, this is an amazing beer that should be in my house permanently. If only they would come to Florida, life would be better.

12 ox. bottle poured into a Duvel Tulip Style Glass. Liquid portion of the beer comes out dark (close to black) brown. Deeper brown highlights only where the liquid portion gets thinner. A hard pour gave an off-white to tan colored head. Not much in the lacing department and it doesn't stick around all that long. Regardless the darkness of the liquid makes it look pretty darn good.

The smell is really good and can be summed up in one word...."coffee." However I'm going to exercise my First Amendment Rights and explain it in a few more words. Not just coffee here, but dark roasted very fresh coffee. The roasted malts also provide hints of bittersweet chocolate and even slight hints of vanilla. For the style, I don't think you can get any better.

Taste is also excellent. There's no real way to describe it, except it's the perfect coffee stout. Even if this were a regular stout it would be extremely tasty. Hints of bitter chocolate, slight chocolate notes, ad the slightest bit of vanilla here, but coffee is the main event. Such a good coffee stout, any coffee drinker or coffee stout lover would thoroughly enjoy this guy.

Mouthfeel is as perfect as it gets. Pretty full flavored but a fairly lighter in body than I expected. Good carbonation level and no alcohol bite at all. Crazy good and ridiculously drinkable; really doesn't get any better. Overall this is the A1 top shelf coffee style stout. Gotta love this one.

Big props to bpfrush for the trade, thanks Brian!
