2010 bottle poured into a goblet.

Appearance: Pours a dark black with a large light brown head and good lacing. This is my second bottle from the 2010 four pack and this one seems much more carbonated with a significantly larger head.

Smell: The coffee aroma is front and center with hints of dark chocolate in the background.

Taste: The taste is dominated by a strong roasted coffee flavor. The finish is slightly bitter like a bite of good dark chocolate. The hops are there, but the bitterness of the coffee and dark chocolate dominate. The bitterness and carbonation combine to leave behind a warm and satisfying sensation.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thick body with a good level of carbonation. (The last bottle seemed much less carbonated - may have been a bad seal since these are screw on bottlecaps.)

Overall: This is a great beer and is definitely one of my favorites. Highly recommended.
