This beer is bite-your-knuckle sexy, just as the bottle claims. It has a dark, dark brown body close to a muddy black and a short-lived but beautiful head the color of a cup of coffee with 1 cream that disappears right before you've been able to fully appreciate it. It's silky smooth, but not thick, and subtly sweet with a killer, sticky and slightly bitter finish and an aftertaste that gently nibbles at your conscience. It's like eating a tiny piece of mildly dark chocolate and no more. It's like a tauntingly gentle kiss on the lips from your high school crush who's also wearing the perfect, creamy chocolate lip-gloss and (for some reason) holding an open cup of coffee beans and standing in a dewy field. Every time I have one, my eyes pop out like Eddie Valiant ogling Jessica Rabbit then settle back in as the potent but manageable 6.5% ABV washes over.
