look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

A: Poured into a pint glass, it appears oil-like as it glug-glugs into the glass: thick and black. A thin wisp of brown head appears on top of an opaque black body. That film of a head disappears quickly, however, likely a victim of the 8.3% ABV. No lace left behind.

S: First impression, not surprisingly, is of the coffee. Roasted coffee beans and just plain coffee. As it warms I get more of a chocolatey smell, but coffee is the dominant scent throughout.

T: Roasted, even slightly burnt, coffee. Husky roasted cereal grains. As I drink it more, the roasted acidity subsides and I begin to get more chocolate -- both dark chocolate, with the commensurate bitterness, and milk chocolate, with its sweetness. The chocolate becomes more pronounced as it warms, though the coffee and roasted barley-like bitterness never entirely subsides. Bitterness on the finish and lingering afterwards. ABV not even in the picture.

M: Definitely full-bodied. Chewy, creamy and smooth all at once, if that's possible.

D: 5.0 all of the way.

Serving type: on-tap
