I've tried this beer a number of times from a bottle and the vast majority of the time I have been somewhat disappointed with the lingering bitter aftertaste. Almost burnt-like from the coffee / chocolate. Still a world-class beer but I don't know that I'll go out of my way to grab multiple bottles of it next time around. Perhaps I should try it on draft and see if that makes any significant difference.
