A very thick brew that oozes a bit during the pour. It is extremely dark brown, and it will just let a bit of light through it. The head is large and it likes to hang out for a while. The aroma is huge with a massive presence of coffee and burnt smells. Dark chocolate is there too. Some subtle sweet hints come in as well, but other than that, it is all dark and roasty.
This one is pretty rich and thick. It is full bodied with light carbonation, and it is a bit chewy. It is loaded with coffee flavors, and if you don't like a big roasty, burnt beer, this one may be a bit much. I would have liked a bit more balance with some sweet chocolate or some dark fruit, but I am not complaining. This is an intense beer, and I would have to say it seems to be at the level of 4 or 5 shots of espresso. It is unique and it still remains drinkable. I will search for this one again.
