A-Pours thick black with a huge fluffy dark ivory head that has ok retention and ok lacing.
S-Only a faint but bright coffee smell. It's only when I swirl my sniffer around do I get a good malty chocolate aroma. That's why it's average to me. Hmmm... after my review was complete, I smelled it again and I got dark plums as well... maybe it's not as plain as I thought...for that, I shall give it a better score on the aroma. A notch or two... 3.5 yup
T-But then the taste...mmm...SO full of coffee and chocolate malt and toffee and sweet dark fruits and soft clean bitterness. The best coffee flavored beer I've tasted thus far indeed.
M-Very creamy and full body with a silky lingering forever aftertaste which is very pleasant that finishes slightly dry.
D-This beer is pretty drinkable. I would suggest trying it if you haven't yet.
