Poured into a balloon glass.

Look: Somewhere between black coffee and really, really dark brown. Mocha colored head with light lacing.

Aroma: Both chocolatey and woody, slightly spicy in that Rogue way.

Taste: Roasted malts, subdued coffee bitterness, some hidden caramel sweetness. Very complex and delicious.

Mouthfeel: Springy, spry, alive!

Overall: Pretty surprised by this. Its very good with lots of different flavors to pick over.
