Very dark brown to almost black with a light tan head. I did'nt get much head despite a pretty rough pour. Some lacing.
Smells of dark chocolates and coffee. A little smokiness is also present.
Taste follows the smell nicely. Nice chocolatey bitter finish. Coffee aftertaste that lingers.
Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied. Good carbonation. Smooth.
Overall this is good.

A- Pours a deep dark brown body with reddish hues around the edges. A nice 2-finger khaki head with good retention. It takes a long time to fall, and stays at a pretty thick cap and leaves great lacing. A very beautiful looking beer.
S- Roasted malts, slight smokiness, caramel, chocolate, and espresso. The caramel relly stands out.
T- Roasted malts, caramel malts, sweet milk chocolate, some coffee, and a slight bitterness in the end.
MF- Medium bodied and creamy feel to this one.

An opaque black beer with a small, quickly dissipating head, spotty lacing. Visibly carbonated and on the thin-bodied side. Roasted, malty aroma with dark coffee, molasses, and a touch of fruity sweetness underneath.
Flavor is very much the same but has a more assertive, bitter hoppiness. Coffee flavors become much more vivid over time. Nice roastiness.
Lively carbonation that prickles the tongue a bit; a little thin but appropriate for the style. Very easy drinking. A beer that really opens up as it breathes; complex roast, coffee, hop, char, burnt sugar and creme brulee flavors emerge.
