12oz bottle poured into pint
Opaque blackness with little to no head/lacing. That's about it.
Plenty of roasted beans and iced coffee scents in the nose. Hints of caramel and baker's chocolate with toasted dark malts.
Slightly sweet coffee and cream up front. Chocolate and caramel backbone with roasted malts and a hint of coffee bitterness. Nicely balanced, finishes with a snap of freshly brewed iced coffee.
Lighter medium body, decent carbonation, smooth and crisp on the tongue, although slightly thin. Easily one of PBC's better beers, I'd drink this again on occasion.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a standard pint. Side note: I've enjoyed this beer for a while now every time it comes around. It seems even better this year, I'm getting more coffee out of this.
Second side note: Best served slightly less than cold.
Appearance: Pitch black with a tanish head that sticks around for a little. Looks the part and keeps its head.
Smell: On point, smells like a pot of coffee.
Taste: This year I'm picking up more coffee than before. This almost tastes straight up like coffee in beer form. Besides that, obviously malts in the background, and ever such a slight amount of hops at the end. Coffee also comes out better if this isn't served ice cold, so if you're drinking it that way, you may "be doin' it wrong." It's great. I don't get why people don't like this. Maybe they're bias towards Yards beers or something. This is a great beer. Was before, seems even better this year.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, kind of goes down... like coffee. Carbonation isn't too bad.
I really do adore this beer. This is also from someone who dug that coffee Pepsi from way back when, so take that for what you will.

Poured a lusterous black body with a thin off-white head. Aroma was of chocolate, a lot of coffee, lactose, caramel, sweet malt, and even some piney hops at the end. Flavor however was somewhat less complex. It tasted of coffee beans, some dark chocolate, slightly licorice, and piney hops at the end. However a nutty wood and coffee feel lingered on the tongue afterwards. It was kind of thin for such a dark beer and not very complex either. Rather like a cold carbonated coffee that was slightly hoppy.
