A - Nearly black with a medium-sized very dark brown head. It lingers indefinitely as a fine brown film on the surface. Lacing ribbons of lacing adorn the sides.
S - Coffee and dark chocolate ganache with a faint, clean peppery hop aroma crispness to it. There is a hint of that pleasant sweet old milky coffee aroma one might find in a few hours old empty mocha container.
T - Initially it is sweet and chocolaty, but this is quickly joined by the coffee - a nice rich, roasted coffee bean flavor. It reminds me a bit of chocolate covered espresso beans (sans grittiness). The aftertaste is a mild coffee bitterness with the slightest hint of that chemical coffee aftertaste most present in bad coffee.
M - Smooth, medium to thick, a little gummy in the throat, but otherwise refreshing.
D - As someone who abstains from coffee, this is a bit much. Not the outstanding flavor of course, but the caffeine. I like the taste, but it's too highly caffeinated for a dainty green tea drinker like myself. I could never drink more than one of these in a sitting. I have to drink it in the morning to fall asleep that night. So, all and all, a beer I like, but will probably avoid.
