A: It poured jet black with a creamy, mocha head and a good amount of head retention.
S: There is a moderate aroma of dark, roasted malts that is very much reminiscent of espresso or French roasted coffee beans.
T: Like the smell, there is an intense flavor of dark, roasted malts. The overall taste also has some hints of sweetness along with a noticeable amount of bitterness, particularly in the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a bit thin on the palate.
D: This beer is very drinkable, especially if you like your coffee strong and black without any milk or sugar.

A pitch black beer with a thin ring of foam on the edge of the glass.

A rather roasted smell, full of coffee and roasted malt. The coffee is very present and far from mild, but it's not a slap in the face. Mocca it is!

Taste is dominated by coffee. Some rougher edges of the coffee that make the beer a little less drinkable. The roasted malts with the coffee give the beer a malt bitter taste. Good beer though!
