Poured into snifter. Oily jet black with a medium thick dark brown head that sticks around. Smells of metallic roasted malts and black coffee/espresso, with some chocolate sweetness hiding behind it. Taste is mind-blowingly good; the first thing that hit me was the super thick mouthfeel, this beer needs a steak knife. Then espresso and bitter roasted malts play off each other before sweet caramel smooths things over, but bitter coffee and chocolate get the last word in. A sticky bittersweet aftertaste is left. Outstanding beer, this one.
