The beer pours as black as anthracite coal. There is a short and fairly thin head of light brown foam. The aroma is lots of cold pressed coffee and some chocolate. The taste is lots of coffee, some dark chocolate, dark roasted malt to the point of char, a touch sweet and a touch tangy, but mostly dry on the finish. There is a bitterness that matches the level of coffee flavor. The mouthfeel is smooth and substantial. This is a nice coffee stout.
Tasting the same, and still very good, in 2015:
