So far, I haven't been much of a fan of (actual) coffee in beers. Usually pass them over. This one, however, is awesome - in the true sense of the word.

Pouring out into the glass, I first marveled at the dense-frothy and spider-webby stickiness and rich, dark shade of mocha brown head. Sticky mess all over - love it.

Superb and surprising rich, dark-roasty mocha aroma - almost cappuccino - with an underlying hi-grade bitter chocolate. Oh so inviting.

Immediate mouth impressions - fine Italian espresso with an initial creamy, rich body - not terribly bitter, though a medium-mellow, but pleasing, roasty bitterness does establish itself and lingers long after each sip.

The coffee is way out front, but balanced beautifully against a chocolaty-roasted-nutty background - almost, but not quite as sweet or flavored similarly to coffee cake. While dropping off clean, it does also give off some alcohol warmth but, thankfully, not the flavors/aromatics of it. If it does, it's been woven in well.

Just mildly mind-blowing. Love it.
