Appears opaque dark brown, capped with a cratered tan head that thins after a couple minutes. Smells more of fruity esters than expected, then the usual bittersweet chocolate and coffee aromas come through, almost alternating. Dark roasted coffee and dry cocoa dominate the flavor, leaving the mouth a bit chalky. Finishes plenty bitter. Medium body and carb where it should be. It's drinkable, but don't hurt yourself seeking this out.
