This will be a short review...

12 ounce bottle poured into a snifter

A: Pours black with a minimal amount of lacing. Light carbonation rises around the sides

S: Coffee (duh), like stuck my nose in a Folger's jar, malts, bitter, dark chocolate,

T: Straight forward coffee, with chocolate taking the back seat, malty, hint of leather,

M: clean taste, thinner than I usually like, frothy, medium-bodied

O: Very fun to drink and not have to give all your attention to, too pricey for what it actually is, needs more body and complexity.
