A) about as dark brown as possible. Light will not go through it. Thick
S) coffee and chocolate. Some vanilla.
T) tastes like coffee, with a little bit of chocolate, oatmeal, and vanilla. I would have never guessed 60IBU.
I like my coffee dark and single origin, so yeah. Flavored coffee is not my thing. I like the beer, but don't see myself drinking more than 1. I guess it is a good desert beer to accompany dessert ice-cream.
M) thick, goes well with desert. A ton of flavors all at the same time.

O) I like the beer, but I see it as a dessert more than a beer. Halfway thru the beer, I pulled out a cup of ice cream and enjoyed them together. I will probably not be getting another 4 pack.
