Love the label on this one!
Pours out pitch black with a medium sized light brown head that settles down to a thin coat. This big guy punches you with a ton of coffee aroma. I would say a little bit of chocolate but I think that's coming from the coffee beans and not so much the beer. Other than that there is a slight sweetness but it's hard to pick out much over the delicious coffee aroma. I'm a big fan of Dark Matter Coffee (I get it at Star Lounge all the time) so I was extremely excited to give this beer a try. The taste follows the aroma... tons of coffee. It's creamy, slightly sweet, roasted and a slight bitterness on the finish whether from the coffee or hops. Quality coffee in here! The let down is the mouthfeel, I think it all kinda feels slightly empty in the mouth, wish there was a little more going on. But then again it isn't a RIS...
Just under 10% and this guy hides it well and makes it very drinkable. You can easily knock out a bottle alone and I think I might just end up doing that.

Bottle shared by HopasaurusRex, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a solid black with a creamy tan head that dissipates rather quickly. Huge coffee aromas as well as some chocolate roast and light brown sugar. Light earthy aromas and a very faint dark dried fruitiness round out the aroma quite well. The flavor is rich dark chocolate maltiness with a bunch of creamed coffee poured over it. Light fruit and earth round out the flavor quite nicely. Medium body with a light to moderate level of carbonation. Really nice coffee brew, I'm glad I got to try this.
