Tan head that lasts for forever. Huge coffee flavor and a bittersweet chocolate aroma. Holy crap this is tasty. Big flavors lasting a long time and the coffee is pretty spot on good. A bittersweet finish with a touch of sweetness. The coffee is the gig here though thick and rich.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a perfect pint. Bottled on 18/04/12 with a purchase price of $9.50.
4.0 A: Black color. Took two pours to fill the glass since the first gave me a full hand of head. Anyway, big, foamy tan head with a pillowy top. Retention is insanely good which resulted in many minutes passing before I could get the glass full. Decent amount of lacing is left.
4.0 S: Potent, refined coffee sticks out at first sniff. Tons of coffee to the point that it blocks out much of the other aromas. Supple roastiness. That’s about all I can say. Coffee, coffee, and more coffee. I definitely like it. Booze is absent.
4.0 T: Again there’s simply tons of coffee. Smooth, supple roastiness, refined. The base gets to come out and play unlike the nose. Chocolate is the next most prominent flavor with some caramel underneath. Moderate neutral malt sweetness. Booze is again well hidden. Great if you love coffee.
4.5 M: Heavier medium to lighter heavy body. Good moderate carbonation despite the giant head. Very nice creaminess with a touch of chewiness to it. Super smooth with a light boozy warming on finish.
4.0 D: This is closer to stouted coffee than a coffee stout. That said, it’s pretty tasty and worth a try if you like coffee.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft @ Sergio’s. Pours black with a tiny tan head. Aroma of rich coffee, chocolate, vanilla and a light earthy scent. Flavor is more rich chocolate and coffee, some fruity esters, roasty bitterness and light alcohol. Full body with as silky smooth mouth feel. Wow, this is a really great beer, tons of coffee and chocolate balanced out with a nice roasty edge.
