Poured from the bottle with a deep, luxurious chocolate brown under a billowy beige head of densely-packed micro bubbles. The aroma is fairly light and clean, with notes of bittersweet chocolate, a dark roasted malt sweetness, a bit of a mineral quality, and only a faint hint of coffee. The flavor is much more aggressive, but it still doesn't scream coffee for me. The flavor is more of a standard imperial stout, with characteristics of charred malts, bitter chocolate, maybe a bit of black licorice. The coffee is certainly there, but it comes out subtly at first before becoming more prominent in the achingly bitter finish. The texture is smooth but resinous, and although not tremendously boozy, it is easy to tell that this beer is potent.
