Holy crap the aroma on this is HEAVENLY! So much coffee. The flavor has a really solid coffee bitterness balanced very well by the sweetness of the stout. Really damn good!

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle... Pours black with a small, creamy, beige head. The aroma is an assortment of nuts, dark chocolate, big espresso and an odd whisper of jalapeno. Medium-bodied and watery with modest carbonation. The flavor is a strange mix of weak coffee and green chilies. Thin overall. This one may have spent too much time in my cellar. Bottle courtesy of BBB63!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 16 oz can.
Aroma has a nice coffee forward character. Light roast notes with some fruitiness and nuttiness from the coffee. Medium light chocolate notes. Light fruit esters.
Pours black with a moderately thick, light mocha head that recedes quickly to the edges where it lingers. Light lacing and faint legs.
Flavor has a nice light sweetness with a solid amount of chocolate and light roast notes. Moderately strong coffee character contributes nice complexity. Medium light bitterness. Some lingering roast character with hints of astringency. Light fruit esters.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly creamy with medium carbonation. Medium low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a pretty good beer with a nice aroma and flavor upfront. The finish is a bit bitter and astringent and reminds me of old coffee grinds, but thankfully its not overpowering. Good but not amazing.
