Deep black opaque with a beautiful mocha head but so so retention. Aroma is strong espresso with some cocoa notes. Flavor is dry espresso with some very dark chocolate malts and a slight alcoholic sweetness. Medium palate, enjoyable

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours fairly dark, not completely black though. Aroma of dark malts, ash and coffee.
Taste is coffee and a barrage of the drier dark malt taste. Expected it to be a bit more creamy than it was.
Bottle from Bier-deluxe.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours almost pitch black with nice head. Aroma: beautiful aroma of fresh coffee beans and roasted malt. Taste: very well balanced bitterness and pleasant dark roasted malt body. Absolutely no coffee sourness. Fantastic stout also for the summer, when you do not necessarily need a 10% ABV Russian Imperial Stout.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice dark brown color. Not as dark as some espresso stouts, but dark enough to look delicious. The head is a nice color as well. As one might expect, that aroma has a good coffee component, along with chocolate and buttery caramel. The beer is rich in the mouth with lots of coffee flavor mixed with dark chocolate. The carbonation is a bit much for this beer, but I think that will get better if the beer sits in the glass for a while. The aftertaste is not as rich as a would like, but this is a very solid beer. An odd one to find in Montana, but one of the better stouts I have had in Montana to be honest.
