A rough pour into a tulip....

A- Pours a dark, dark black coffee color, topped with a 1 finger darker than coffee ice cream colored head. Just about the darkest colored head on a beer that I have seen....to date. Head disappates quickly, leaving minimal very spotty lacing behind. Even with only 3/4 of an inch of beer left....hold this up to light...almost pitch black...no light penetrates this one.

S- Dark roasted coffee. Some chocolate. Some booze.

T- Delicious! Malty. Dark roasted coffee. Bittersweet chocolate. Perhaps a hint of licorice.

M- Very light carbonation. Oily. Slick. Somewhat dry and just a hint of bitterness.

O- This is damn fine! Cannot wait to find some more.
