I'm a sucker for a great beer, I don't normally do dark ale beers but I've tried a few and this one is arguably amongst my top 2.

Black pour with a brown head. Aroma of dark roasted malt and light espresso. Taste has flavors of burnt malt (strongest), light smoke, dark chocolate, coffee and some earthiness.

Pours a midnight black with coffee colored head that lingers for awhile. This was very drinkable and not too boozy. Smelled of chocolate and roasted malts with a hint of coffee and vanilla. Tasted the same. A very nice beer!
