Deep black body, big fluffy brown/beige head. Simmers down before settling in at about a finger. Massive lacing.

Sweet nose primarily. Almost like rosebuds. Chocolate syrup and oat-ified body.

A little thin and reserved. Sweet chocolate syrup/bitter bakers cacao combine. There's a bit of bitter, and it's got some black coffee to it, but there's also the cacao contributing. Smoothe and easygoing, just wish it were a bit thicker/chewier/more pronounced. Small bubbles, but persistent. The carbonation punctuates the bitter coffee finish.

It tastes like some kind of coffee soda. Unless you are a fan of this style, I'd say avoid it. There's nothing good about drinking an alcoholic version of black coffee and club soda. It is not "bad" though; just not my cup of tea. (Bear in mind, I am a fan of dark beer and the various styles from which they originate.)
