This is a nice drinking coffee stout. Hearty yet smooth on the flavor profile. Coffee accents are a nice addition. It isn't overpowering, but it's smooth overall. Feel is great. Drinkability is really nice. I could go for many of these. And on that note, I wish I had more than one right now.

P: 12oz bottle into a perfect pint glass.

A: Super dark, opaque black with a foamy two finger brown head. Looks great in the glass, like a dark roast coffee.

S: A lot of dark roasted caramel malt, some coffee and dried plums. I find the aroma very inviting.

T: Slightly sweet up front, alcohol is well hidden in the finish. There's a nice roasted malt flavor along with the coffee notes in the background, hops are not pronounced at all. Coffee flavors linger in the finish, well balanced.

M: Creamy, lower carbonation, both a great for the style. Coats your mouth with each sip.

O: One of the better beers I've had in recent memory. A nice balanced malt profile with coffee flavors that add to the experience rather than overwhelm it. Not too sweet, which I find to be an issue with some imperial stouts, well balanced overall.

A-poured into a snifter; pours a deep dark opaque black with a small, dark tan fizzy head that reduced quickly, leaving no lace. Looks like a cup of coffee a few seconds after the pour.

S- dark roasted malts provide dark chocolate, smoky charred wood, molasses, a bit of rubber, and day old coffee

T- sweet dark fruit up front with notes of fig and raisin, the sweetness continues mid-palate with slightly roasted notes, the finish is dry, leaving a strong linger of coffee with a bit of chocolate. Strangely enough, I don't taste any of the coffee until the linger on the palate, but when it hits, it's pretty strong

M- medium-heavy body, low carbonation, creamy mouthfeel with a smooth finish. Alcohol warms it up just a bit on the finish, but otherwise hidden well.

O- this one had some interesting flavors, it's the sweetest coffee stout that I've tried, maybe just a bit too sweet. The flavors that lingered on the palate would have been ideal throughout the whole sip. Nonetheless, still a good stout and worth trying.
