A- Coffee, chocolate, roasty.
A- Black color, dark liquid, tan head.
T- Coffee, chocolate, bitter cocoa, roasty, slightly sweet, balanced.
P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, roasty finish.
O- This sweet stout has a lot of coffee flavor and lots of chocolate. Not as creamy as I would have expected it to be but the sweetness from all the sugar is definitely present.

Not the worst beer I've ever had, but I definitely don't want to have it again. Kinda crappy.

Certainly sweeter than other stouts, but that isnít necessarily a good thing. Different and a refreshing departure from other stouts, but the favors donít lend to more than wanting 6 to 8 oz.

@ South Denver Beer Fest 2013. Clear heavy dark brown with a thin foamy light-khaki head. Aroma has some creaminess and a bit of roasted dark cocoa. Nice flavor of sweet dark chocolate, a bit of vanilla and a gentle creaminess. Sweet, but not overtly so. Just a bit roasty. Bit of nougat as well. Enough hop bitterness to balance, which I honestly could have done without.
