Pours almost black with minimal head and a fair amount of carbonation. Prominent coffee in the nose with toasted malt and chocolate not far behind. Taste is predominantly coffee with powdery bittersweet dark chocolate. Some grain and oatmeal accents and a touch of hops. Creamy and chewy feel. A good, fairly accessible coffee bomb.

Black color with mocha head. Aroma is full of chocolate and coffee, like a sweet coffee drink. Taste follows but more balanced, not really sweet but still chocolate and coffee forward. Really heavy and smooth body with soft carbonation. No alcohol whatsoever, extremely drinkable, smooth and tasty.

a sipper handed to me by my bro for easter . . .

smooth, refined, mucho coffee, more than a tad of dark chocolate. smell matches taste, with a faint, pleasant earthiness or smoke that is very subtle. mouth feel is super smooth, a bit dry on the finish. impression is that it is a well crafted brew. basically nil on the head, but it was poured from a mini growler brought down for me, so may have had a bit more carbonation earlier.

note - i see others saying it seems the coffee flavor is too burnt. i respectfully disagree, but i also like a very strong cup of dark roast in the morning (sumatra is a regular in my house), so if you aren't a coffee lover, this may not be your thing . . .

one i will seek out to try again, as i enjoy the coffee stouts, and this represents the style quite well, imo.
