upon pouring this beer is very opaque, with a deep color and a decent head with a hint of cocoa coloring. the head is rather full and leaves a very nice lacing on the side of the glass, it also brings out the aromas very well.

the smell definitely brings out coffee but also a faint aroma of dark, rich chocolate. it does not take multiple smells to detect the flavor of this beer, the rich cascade of coffee and dark chocolate is apparent at the first smell.

the mouth feel is full, smooth and almost creamy but finishes bitter and exhibits more of coffee after swallowing. you can taste the oak and coffee in the aftertaste more than you can initially, as it lingers with a slight bitterness on the tongue post swallow. the alcohol is apparent, but not overwhelming or unbalanced; you can taste it a little going down and in the bitterness of the after taste, but thats expected given the abv.

i've had this beer multiple times, most recently following the food pairing suggestion on the bottle and trying it with some cheesecake. the combination was fantastic, i would highly recommend giving this beer a shot on its own and then having it with some deserts the second time around.
