This beer pours an beautiful opaque darkest brown that I've ever seen, almost black with a one finger mocha colored head. Head retention is pretty good, receding to a film and leaves thin, spots of lacing on the glass. Nose is of espresso at first but as the beer warms dark chocolate, roasted malts and oak notes come through. Taste of this one changes as it warms. Initially it is espresso through and through - sharp, bitter coffee with the espresso aftertaste. As it warms, dark chocolates and roasted malts make their presence known. Oaked smokiness make it's way through as well. Alcohol is present on the way down and slightly in the aftertaste. Full bodied with enough carbonation to give a nice thick creamy feeling. Initially it had a supremely dry finish, but as it warmed became somewhat sticky and chewy. This is a great beer, one of the best that I've tried lately. The progression of complexity as it warms is more pronounced than any other beer that I've tried. I need to snag another bottle of these before it's too late!

** Edit: As the beer warmed, my glass is now coated with thick lacing.
