Pours jet black with brown head that leaves great lacing.
Smells of roasted coffee beans, chocolate, caramel
Tastes very similar to smell with slight boozy undertones well hidden beneath strong coffee/chocolate
Mouthfeel unbelievably smooth and creamy
Overall perfect

For Raul it is about damn time! I mean, finally being able to sip on this bad boi is like fantasizing about the captain of the cheerleading squad and then her finally letting you play with her pompoms.

The hype?

Yeah, this gosh darn thang is pretty good. Beautiful roasted coffee and chocolate on the nose - which also shows up in da flava. Although, where Raul sees a bit of a letdown is n tha mouthfeel. Not as Irina Shayk "silky" as Raul would like - not that Cristiano Rinaldo wouldn't date this thang - but Parabola and Stone Espresso Stout definitely are a bit smoother.

Still, Raul agrees. Raul agrees well and good.
