Thanks to upsjeff for this bottle!
No light can penetrate the blackness that this liquid has. Truly black. Very nice dark tan colored thick two-fingered head of dense foam. Good retention. Excellent 'curtain-like' lacing. Not so much 'lace', as it is more like a solid sheet of film. Excellent!
Very nice hefty malt nose. A small swirl brings out notes of dark fruit. Light coffee scent is present, though not as much as expected.
Big dark malts mixed with espresso shots hit you first. Chocolate notes mingle with dark fruit sweetness. An ever so light hint of vanilla kind of levels things out to a very nice balance.
Very nice and silky in the mouth. Creamy smooth, yet light.
Excellently drinkable. I can't argue with so many before who have rated this brew so highly. It truly is worthy of it's praise.

11.5oz bottle poured into a snifter. 6 and 1 notched on the label of this twist off bottle.
A: Pours a very dark brown appearing pitch black in the glass. A mild khaki tan head sits on top, dissipating in a couple minutes.
S: Initially there is a nice dose of coffee that blends very well with a roasted malt quality. Dark fruit qualities come out more as it warms along with a touch of smokiness.
T: A beer with flavor that builds on you. At first I get a slightly bitter coffee, then a blend of dark fruit comes through. The aftertaste lingers with a great roastiness for a solid 2 minutes after each sip.
M: Very smooth beer. Creamy mouthfeel that slides like velvet over your tongue. Doesn't even seem like an alcoholic beverage. Remarkable.
Overall I am stunned with the complexity yet harmony of this beer. Coffee is just enough to add without overwhelming, hops compliment the coffee and the roastiness just works period.
