Head was small and went away quickly.
Color is very close to black.
Taste is strong in coffee hints and dark chocolate. Goes down smooth.
Overall, good stuff.

Good but not great. Year-old bottle, though, from a trade.

Was hoping for a little more complexity based on the ingredients. Very mild chili taste almost non-existent.
