Thanks to kkulacki for 12oz bottle! Color on pouring into a pint glass is dark, but with tones of brown as well, so it's not totally black. The head is cream-colored and with a fantastic amount of lacing. Taking a whiff of this thing, you can start to smell the coffee...and some alcohol from a few inches away. Closer sniff is all coffee/espresso and roast. On to the taste. The first hit is all coffee. Very strong coffee...then as it moves to the back of the palate, more of the bitter chocolate tones come through. There's definitely a taste of alcohol and it's very bitter on the finish, but not overwhelming. As far as drinkability, I'd probably only have one or two - it's definitely good, but a strong one and quite bitter and heavy.
