A: Appears to be very dark brown, if not black, in the glass, but holding it up to the light reveals it to be a bit thin and translucent. Forms a moderate sized deep tan colored head, but the beer offers little retention. Light lacing.

S: Aroma is mostly roasted malts, coffee, and cocoa with a mix of citrus and piney hops.

T: Taste starts of with mostly roasted malts and milk chocolate, then it thins out. Lighter notes of coffee and citrus hops. Maybe a slight hint of smoke.

M: Medium bodied. Lower carbonation. Mild bitterness.

O: A decent stout. A bit hoppy for the style, but that is to be expected with FFF.
