Opaque brown with a tall tan head that leaves generous lacing on the glass. Sweet brown sugar aroma with roasted notes. Thick body with an intense chocolaty sweetness up front lending to a roasted bitterness of coffee flavors.

black pour with a head that lasts quite a while. lots of chocolate and coffee on the nose but that’s about it. the head tastes like coffee and it’s actually quite thick for what i was expecting. nice coffee aftertaste as well.

Pours very dark brown with brown head. Nice aroma of coffee and chocolate. Flavor also has lots of roast coffee and chocolate with some cream in there. Palate is a little thinner than i expected but still nice. Overall a pretty nice beer. Has a good alcohol punch but not overbearing(although my buzz is strong right now). pretty nice beer.

Thick, dark, and slightly sweet. A little reddish when held up to the light. seems more chocolatey than coffeeish.

Extra from redlight from the Homebrew Mystery Swap 1.0. Dark brown to opaque black in color with large off-white/beige head. Aroma of cold coffee with chocolate, sweet roasted malt. Sweet creamy coffee, with sweet milk chocolate, mild bittering hops. Medium body that is fairly chunky. Not half bad, actually kind of good.

Rich chocolate flavor. Not a cappuccino, just a solid, rich coffee stout. There’s a nice creamy roast flavor to this beer. Very solid. Very good.
