Poured from a 16 oz. can (no date) into a pint glass.
A strong pour yields a 1/2-finger mocha-colored head that quickly fades to a minute dusting and thin foam ring. The body is a dark brown nearing black that shows no traces of color when held to light. Some thin but decent lacing can be seen clinging to the glass as the beer disappears.
Dark and sweet, the nose is filled with aromas of chocolate, coffee, and some slight earthy hops. Notes of molasses, brown sugar, and toffee are also noticeable.
Milk and dark chocolate hit the taste buds immediately along with a metallic tang (perhaps from the can?). Letting the beer sit on the tongue reveals some grassy hops, a touch of alcohol, and notes of caramel and roasted coffee beans. Upon swallowing, the dark chocolate and coffee flavors really come to stand out. As these flavors begin to fade, a slightly bitter coffee aftertaste sticks around to linger on the palate between sips.
Medium bodied with little carbonation, this beer is a great drinker but leaves a bit to be desired. The body is smooth and enjoyable without becoming coating or sticky. The carbonation is definitely lacking as this beer has zero fizz and is a bit rough in the swallow.
