Pours out a dark black into my snifter with a very thin brown head that disappeared quickly. A bit more of a head would have been nice, but that's my only real quarrel with this beer.
Smell is a wall of roasted espresso in your nose. Seriously, it smells like putting your nose over a pot of coffee. There's some burnt and roasted malts in there as well, but the coffee dominates.
Hits the tongue with a thick and full mouthfeel that is full of, among other things, espresso, dark baking chocolate, and roasted malt. It's certainly a huge flavor, and it comes in waves, with the espresso dominating on the front end, but the chocolate really pulling through in the finish and lingering for quite some time.
Wow, this is ridiculously drinkable for a stout of its ABV. I immediately wanted to drink a second one.
