Pours a licorice/espresso/spent motor oil body. While 1st pour has only a thin wispy head 2nd pour yields big and bountiful pumpernickel/banana nut bread colored head. Impressive.
Mild yet abundant scent of coffee beans backed by caramel/cinnamon sugar malt and oily alcohol. Smells nicely ominous.
((eyes rolling into back of head))
Wow. Lots and lots of coffee-Italian roast or darker. Loads of malt and piney piney hops. Warmth brings out more cinnamon sugar and molasses. $#!+ dog!
Literally melts on the mouth. First sip or 2 leaves a little tin on the back but this dissipates. Long, sweet sledgehammer of a finish.
Awesome stuff but here's a news flash...not quite sessionable. Drinks invitingly well for its weight class, though.
