Dark, dark brown. Virtually black. Forms a smallish deep tan colored head. Very little lacing. Great aroma: coffee, vanilla, char, dark malts. Taste is similar: slight, viscous sweetness. Vanilla, chocolate, brownie, and fudge. Then coffee and dark malts a little molasses. Very complex. Very nice. Mouth is thick, viscous and full bodied. Mild bitterness. This is a very nice beer. Quite impressive

A - Black with some brown around the edges when held up to the light

S - Chocolate and Vanilla bomb. It's like a liquid s'more. A nice roasty aroma and sweetness.

T - Not as smooth on the taste. Slightly overly bitter with the coffee. A nice vanilla kick on the back though.

M - Not as thick as anticipated, but still coats your mouth.

O - Sweet smelling and tasting with lots of roast and vanilla. Nicely done.
