The beer pours a very dark brown, mahogany black. There is a tall, thick, foamy head that is tan in color. The aroma is dark roasted malt, lots of coffee, kind of like walking by a coffee house while drinking a stout. The taste is a rich, smooth, elegant, dark roasted stout, full of dark chocolate, dark cocoa, and loads of rich, dark roasted coffee. The beer drinks smooth and round and easy. This is the best coffee stout I have ever had, it incorporates the coffee into the stout better than any other (it is not coffee over stout, or coffee in stout, it is truly a “coffee stout”).
