Hugely aromatic with coffee. Some nice suds on pouring, but it dissipates rapidly. Plenty of fizz on the tongue.

Intense coffee flavor. Very thin and sharp. Some bitter chocolate taste, even more in the aftertaste. Rather acidic. This is an oddity; it's not the usual fattened-up malt bomb of a choco stout.

Worth a try if you like big-flavored beers, but quite a lightweight coffee slash of a brew. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Grapevine Liquor in Denver.
