Glassware: Bordeaux

Appearance: Jet black, comprised of mostly foam bubbles, some mid size, about an inch of tan head. Sticky, but not overtly

Smell: Roast black coffee, hints of toffee/molasses. Hint of alcohol at first, went away later.

Taste: first taste-coffee, intense roasty toasty smokey, 10 seconds in hits with more flavors, 30 sec plus finish. (temp about 55) Later, developed nicely, smoothed out as opened up and got to around 60-65 degrees. Also, caco notes and heavy malt (actually ate whoppers candy with it, the malt went hand in hand)

Mouthfeel: coats nicely, thick and lightly chewy.

Drinkability: intense at first, softens with time. A great beer altogether, worth the price. Could probably age 5-10 yrs no prob.
