Poured a finger of tan head on a pitch black body.
The aroma is full of molasses with a little burnt wood and caramel. Wonderful.
The taste is incredible. Lots of burnt malt and molasses but nicely balanced, which makes it almost too easy to drink.
The texture is thick with low to moderate carbonation.
Heaven in your mouth.

It was awesome. Had on tap at Slate. I could've used a darker look, but a very pretty looking beer. The smell wakes you up like a black cup of joe, and the taste of the beer has a nice chocolate flavor to match the coffee. Amazingly smooth mouthfeel.
