Poured into a St. Bernardus goblet. Dark as night with a brown head. Bad-ass, heady coffee/espresso smell - smells like the container on my coffee grinder after a week of grinding french roast beans. Fantastic smell.
Coffee, coffee, coffee. Dark, french pressed coffee. Not Maxwell House coffee. Not "water dressed in brown" coffee (to quote Ani DiFranco). Not Starbucks House Blend coffee - but COFFEE. This tastes and smells as if it were a very well-made, french pressed, "french roast" cup of coffee. Slick and smooth, with a an oily presence, as it should because it tastes like dark, french pressed coffee. A hint of smoke, which makes sense, because it tastes like dark, french pressed coffee. Slight bitter finish with a presence of dark chocolate -- like a good french pressed coffee. Have I said that this tastes like good, dark, french pressed coffee?
It's not something to drink all night. It's not something to drink all day. It's just something to drink at a point in time and that point in time is the present moment in which you drink it. It's very zen...and it tastes like damn good coffee!
I love this.
