Skinny can with a freshness date on the bottom.

Nearly full on black, beautiful rings of lace on the glass. Big display of aromatics, bold roasted coffee, cacao nibs, black berries, mild charcoal and faint rose water. Semi-creamy fullish body, lots of backbone here. Rustic vibe, mellow overtones of chocolate with a lush brushing of coffee. Floral, clean alcohol, kiss of malt sweetness and a balanced hoppiness let the beans unleash their full complexities. At 10% you can feel the warmth but no heat at all, a pleasure to drink and it is obviously a sipper ... perfect portioned can.

I poured this into a tulip glass, it has a rich black colored body with a nice tan head on it. The smell has a nice roasted malt and coffee aroma.
The taste is out of this world, the balance of coffee and choc is great, u taste them both. It also has some roasted malt to it also. The mouth feel is spot on and overall a darn good beer.

A: Dark; darker than a black steers tucus on a...(Damn, can't remember the rest of the Lebowski quote.) Great head, especially for my terrible pour and a can.

S: Honestly I smell a fresh iced coffee...and that's about it. Very powerful mocha blend I'm guessing. (A little stuffed up though, so you may find more with your tasting!)

T: OH!!!! Now I may have finally found the reason so many people go crazy for Sixpoint! This may smell coffe strong, but the taste is a great blend of malty flavor with a robust porter and a good quality coffe finish. Actually there is an initial coffe impact but it tapers in the middle. IMPRESSED!

M: Heavy, but just as it should be. Not like need a knife and fork heavy, but still a wee bit more than medium. I would love to try this on Nitro Tap!

O: I'm glad I found a brew by this maker I dig. I'm a stout/porter kind of guy, so it was no surprise I got into it, but it had been a while since I had found something this fun. I will be buying this again...and honestly I can't think of a bigger praise for a beer.
