1 pint .9 oz bottle I picked up at Five Points Bottle Shop in Athens, GA. Served up in a snifter glass.

A: Pours a fast, almost completely black. It only lets a touch of light through in the form of a dark, crimson red beam. The head is the most impressive part of this beer. Big and fluffy, three fingers of head that builds with careful pour. It has amazing retention that you can't get rid of. The foam is sticky on the glass and notches as the beer goes down. Pretty damned impressive thus far.

S: Smells like a bag of fresh coffee beans. Like really good coffee beans. Coffee beans I can't afford to buy, but I still buy so I look cool when I am in New England. Got some oatmeal coming through and a touch of chocolate, but the coffee is the power here.

T: Taste is of some nicely roasted and subtle coffee. There is also subtle notes of chocolate and oatmeal. The problem here is that it is too subtle. The flavors are really weak in my opinion. I was expecting something a bit more mind blowing and in your face. Unfortunately, this is just a below average tasting stout. Who would have thunk it.

M: This is a medium bodied brew that unfortunately has a bit too watery feel. This is a stout damnit, act like it. Carbonation is too high. Aftertaste is of some bitter coffee. You get some coating of the palate. This beer is weak though. Very weak. What the hell.

D: The thiness of this beer makes it very drinkable but it is just an average brew in the taste department. The smell and look is great. Just that taste and feel are turn offs. Such a shame.
