Poured from a 12oz bottle into a standard pint glass.
Pours dark brown, with a relatively dense layer of foam - perhaps a quarter-inch or so. Fantastic lacing all the way down the glass.
Aromas are a bit boozy, heavy on coffee and chocolate.
Flavors are strong with roasted coffee and bitter chocolate. There is some balancing bitterness that has a bit of a grassy note to it, but there is a lingering bitter cocoa taste in the linger. Mouthfeel is not as heavy as I expected, and it was rather smooth.
Easy to drink and very enjoyable. Definitely recommended.
