Poured from a bomber into a mug, the beer is a very dark, brown-to-black coloring with ruby highlights around the edges and a thick, dense, small bubbled, creamy, light tan colored head. Looks great. Aromas of bitter coffee, tangy sweet cream, vanilla notes, woody character, and hints of booze. Surprisingly tangy sweet nose. Flavors are rich and smooth, with a creamy undertone that really mellows everything out and makes this beer so easy to drink that it's scary. Wow. Coffee and char first and foremost, providing bitterness, but also some roast and depth to the palate overall. The sweet and rich cream notes come on a bit towards the end to smooth out the rough edges and keep the drinkability up. Smooth bodied, with hints of dryness. The aftertaste is like coffee ice cream, both bitter and rich. Surprisingly sharp, clean, crisp finish, with only a hint of creamy linger. Solid brew!
