Jet black, fairly viscous pour. Beautiful cinnamon colored head. It doesn't last real long, but leaves a tight, Saturn like ring around the glass.

Tons of coffee and chocolate aromas on top of ashy/charred grains.

Tastes like a combonation of dark and milk chocloate along with a cocoa powder sweetness. Soooo much coffee and soooo much chocolate. They both tango with the deep roasted malt flavors that are packed with oats. A deep, lingering bitter, and ashy aftertaste. Like licking an ashtray in a good way.

Full, silky, chewy. Carbonation gives it a little bit of crispness.

To me, this is like a threesome with Cheerios, Herseys, and Starbucks. One of my favorite beers.
