Poured from a clear 12 oz. bottle, it's dark brown with a trace of cherry when held up to the light. The initially fat head fades quickly but never disappears completely. In addition to the expected coffee aromas, it presented a bit of a winey smell that was surprising but not unpleasant. The taste is a thoroughly enjoyable mix of coffee, hints of chocolate, and just a bit of hop bitterness. Drinkability? This is an all-day beer.

The Famous Taddy poured into the pint glass and was barely see through with a small foam head and minimal lacing. The aroma was roasty and had some nice chocolate tones.

It had a nutty flavor and again of chocolate on the tongue. It was comfortable to drink and was soft in the mouth. Overall a solid beer.
