12oz bottle at fridge temp poured into a pint glass.

Pours black with a small pale head, lots of fine carbonation. Smell is nice and rosary, some coffee and chocolate.

Taste is lots of coffee and a little chocolate, maybe a slight hint of vanilla which is quite nice. Nice bittersweet finish, really tasty.

Mouth feel is surprisingly light. Overall, very nice.

A - Tan and creamy 2 inch head that holds well. Good lacing. Deep dark brown color. Minimal amounts of light seep through. Medium carbonation.

S - Sweet and malty. Dark fruits (e.g. plums). A slight chocolate smell and a nice smokiness.

T - Sweet and chocolaty at the front. Then it changes to a semi bitter smokey nuttiness.

M - Fairly thick in body. Alcohol burn is minimal as is carbonation.

O - I really like this beer. The smell is delicious. The sweetness is very pleasant and the bitterness is not overpowering.
