Poured from a bottle into a gold rimmed tulip, the appearance is black with a slight almond colored head. It looks good and somewhat intimidating, like it's going to punch you in the face.
The smell was so-so. I get coffee, some bitter cocoa, just a little roasted note, and booze. There's a higher pitched scent in there as well that I can't put my finger on but is a nice hint.
The taste is great. I love this beer. It's malty and toasty. I'm really feeling some coffee with this beer, far more pronounced than the nose. Slight hints of chocolate and a really wonderful bitterness throughout.
