Appearance: Dark brown but not quite black, nice, rich, tan 1/2” head and lacing down the glass
Aroma: As you would expect, lots of rich roasted malt and coffee aromas
Taste: Again, the name says it all. This tastes like a chilled coffee with some hoppy bitterness and alcohol in the background.
Mouthfeel: Nice medium feel to this beer, a mild spiciness and bitter coffee-like finish.
Overall: If you like coffee and stouts then this is the beer for you. This is a very well done beer with lots of roasty coffee flavor and without as much of the astringency that you get in other coffee stouts.
It's lighter in body than other stouts so if you prefer a full-bodied stout, this might be a little thin. On the plus side, it's lighter in alcohol than other stouts as well which means you can have more than one! I enjoyed it at near room temperature and would recommend it that way.
