This is a beer that's tough to beat. Pours from a bottle into a pint glass dark as can be, a small amount of head the disappears quickly and does not lace, at least at the close to fridge temp I had it.

Appearance is beautiful. Aroma is the same - there's a lot going on here, and us mere beer mortals are just here to enjoy.

Taste is a grand slam. Can't say much more except great initial hit, coffee is in there but not too strong, not too bitter aftertaste, hard to get 8.3% out of it but there you go. Great hops complimenting the roasted malt broadside assault.

Overall great beer. Need to get up to Grand Rapids sometime when it is on tap, that is for sure.
