Pours an opaque very dark brown with glints of cola brown around the bottom edge when held to the light. Coffee and a bit of cocoa on the nose. Thicker consistency, but too much carbonation too quickly. Big coffee flavor. Some lactose, but not enough, in my opinion. The coffee flavor is nice, but the coffee acidity is barely tempered by the creaminess. The carbonation tends to overpower the lactose feel and flavor. It's ok. I was excited to get the chance to try it again. I'd had it several years ago. But, more recently, there's been quite a bit of hype about it. I don't feel it's lived up to it.
