Thanks to goodbyeohio for this. . .
Has a body that is black as a good cup of coffee. Two inches of mocha/tan foam retains well.
Smells of good quality roasted coffee first and foremost. The coffee is not super strong over acidic kind that you would pay too much a a small cup and be left with gut rot. It is a damn near perfect coffee taste and aroma that is backed up by some dark roasted malt and clean water. The feel is slightly creamy, but overall light and easy to sip.
I had this in the morning with some breakfast on my back deck on a easy Sunday morning. It was truly a wish you were here moment that was accompanied by an excellent beer. I hope the east coasters here will keep trading for this. It is a very good beer.

A - This beer is very dark. When held to the light only a faint ruby glow is perceptible. It is topped with a couple inches of tan head. There is a little lacing.
S - I smell some coffee, but it is not strong at all. There really isn't much else.
T - I get a some coffee and roasted malt. There is a mildly bitter finish.
M - Medium with low carbonation.
O - Full disclosure: this beer has two things working against it. This is my second beer of the evening. The first was a Peruvian Morning with huge coffee smell and taste. This beer lacks compared but still has its own merits. Second, this bottle was purchased in Massachusetts about ten months ago. I may have held on to it for too long. It is decent but not as good as the score indicates. i will revisit given the opportunity for a fresher bottle and a cleaner palate.

I really like this beer. Very dark and robust, with a creamy coffee like flavor (as though I had added cream to my coffee). Flavors are really well balanced. Very nice mouthfeel. Great aromas. And I found that it is very reasonably priced.
Had it for the first time on tap at the Grill Next Door (Haverhill MA), and have since had it in bottles several times. Both quite good.
