A- pitch black w a thin sticky dark khaki lace... Looks viscous.

S- coffee heavy... Fresh coffee with some sweet malt and cream.

T- like baileys! Coffee and cream with a touch of booze... Vanilla works it's way in...

M- smooth and almost no hints of booze... Silky and medium-bodied mouthfeel.

Excellent beer.
