Pours pitch black with a brown head that dissipates rather quickly. Smells like straight black coffee. Touch of chocolate.

Thick syrup like mouthfeel. Overwhelming amounts of coffee flavor. Touch of chocolate. But basically just like drinking thick black coffee. Not a huge fan. Has a nice finish so it could pair extremely well with dessert. It's okay and id have it again under the right circumstances but eh.

I was looking forward to this beer. A renowned brewery must have done a coffee stout right ... or so I thought.

It pours beautifully, but that's where the goodness ends.

The smell (or stench) is upsetting. Like raunchy socks at the bottom of a hamper.

The taste isn't balanced. Coffee is present in abundance and overpowers everything else, except for a bit of cocoa.

A more subtle coffee flavor would help this beer substantially.

A-black with a thick brown head, very pretty.

S-dark roasted coffee but mostly has a tint of bitterness and vegetables. medium scent. smells off

T-comes in with an odd flavor of coffee and something else...possibly really sweet caramel? its bitter and different, but not good different. there's maybe a taste of butter? the after-taste is of dark roasted coffee.

M-medium carbonation with a dry finish

O-not a great stout. the flavors seem to be oddly off balance to me. this isn't something i'll want again. sweet looking bottle though.

Very dark mahogany brown in the glass. Head flattens out fairly rapidly. Kind of an oily texture with virtually no lacing. Smells like some kind of squash or green vegetable to me.

Cocoa flavor is the main thing. Malty with an alcoholic overtone. Certainly a different kind of coffee from other flavored stouts I've tried, and it's not so bitter. The whole flavor is quite smooth. Only modestly bitter with no flowery hops apparent. The coffee does provide the aftertaste along with a winey flavor. This is not quite like anything I've had before, but perhaps it's an improvement on the all too frequent "dregs of last week's coffee" taste.

From the 12 oz bottle.

12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown black with a medium creamy brown head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet lactic vanilla and chocolate with some dark fruit and acidic coffee roast.

The flavor is sweet vanilla with some dark fruit and a leathery roast coffee finish. The mouhfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation and is a bit watery.

Overall, it's a bit overly sweet for me and lacking in coffee.
