The beer, which has been in my fridge for almost a year now, pours a jet black with a 1/2 inch of tan head. There is considerable lacing and a speckling of fine sediment on the bottom. What surprises me the most is the longevity of this head throughout drinking.
I've let the beer warm considerably so the nose ranges from sweet, sticky toffee to bitter, roasted coffee. The taste is just as potent with upfront grain sweetness teeming with hints of coffee, chocolate, followed by a dry, bitter finish. The mouthfeel is smooth as velvet, but I would have liked more of the grain to linger. The carbonation and full body made this a perfect dessert beer. Definitely up there with FBS and WnB, but not quite there yet.

In a word "meh." Nothing great, not horrible but the six pack I bought was definitely more of than I want to drink. You can actually taste the grittiness of the coffee beans, but no actual coffee. There's some chocolate overtones, but in a powered box kind of way. It leaves a hell of an after taste, and again not in a good way. The more I write, the more I don't like the beer.
