Great balance of coffee aroma and cocoa. Great finish and lingering hops.

22 oz bottle- Pours mostly black with a fairly small light tan head that reduces to a blanket. Aroma is dark roasted malts, dark berries, cocoa. The taste is cocoa up front, quality coffee, the hops are noticeable, but not distracting, dark roasted malts, really well blended beer here. Tasty.

Very, very dark, almost black with a generous coarse tan head. Smells sweet, caramel & dark chocolate. Flavor is dark roasted coffee & roasted malt. Not much hop flavor but everything is nicely balanced. Feels thinner than it looks but plenty of carbonation.
