12 oz bottle, poured in a chalice glass. Pitch black, hardly any amber under the light. Smells strongly of alcohol, but the taste is smooth. No coffee taste here. A trace of floral and spices combined with a chocolate roasted malt flavor and a smokey, bitter finish with a pleasant aftertaste. One of the better stouts I've tasted. Top notch.
