Received via flyingbison. Thanks!

This one poured out very dark, but not quite black. The head was very abundant, and it is a good thing that I did not pour it aggressively or I would have been cleaning up a mess.

The smell was outstanding. I tried this beer immediately after Peche Mortel, and was very impressed that it not only stood up to it, but actually surpassed it in this category. Lots of lovely coffee aroma here.

The taste followed the smell very well. It was full of coffee, but could have been a bit more well-rounded. The coffee drowned out some of the malts and hops, but this was not a big distraction overall.

The feel was good, but not overwhelming. The finish was dry, reminiscent of a rye beer.

Awesome coffee stout, and it held its own head-to-head against one of the top beers in the world.
