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

short brown bottle poured into speckled hen pint glass

A - well, the head is a bit sparse with huge bubbles, so that is the only fault I can really find in truth: an unatracitve head, not that bad to begin with! the body is black like an ink I use for my caligraphy. can you see through it? no. is there a slight chance you can? no. black as a moonless night in the woods.

S - smells like a freshly ground bag of coffee with some bakers chocolate added in. the chocolate's bitterness becomes blended and less apparent, and blended in with the hardcore bitter espresso/coffee smell. but really: coffee, if anything, then coffee.

T - well, it tastes like an iced coffee already in my tasting process, simply phenomenal!. I know they use coffee in the brewing process but to get such a beautiful taste as this is amazing! it actually tastes like a NYC coffee soda for those ny jews like me that like those oddities from nyc. well back to point: formost it tastes like coffee, no alcohol or much else like that. for the finish: the coffee gets stronger and is checked by a strong bitterness different than the coffee, that of chocolate. the chocolate finally makes an appearance on my palate! with such wonderous effect it graces my buds and makes me want more, though I know my store has no more (I bought the last!). this is truly a beer among beer as far as taste goes. the aftertaste is like that of the highest gourmet chocolate covered espresso beans. I have never tasted something like this before in my life.

MF&D - the feel is a bit thin for something as big bodied as this, I would have to liked to see it as thick as the mikkeller geek. the drinkability as with many great beers is no great chalenge for me, I love it and I am going out to the store right now to get some of my father in law some.

I had this beer after it sat out for a half hour, letting it warm up to some degree in my mildly warm apartment.
