A: Black with a dark brown head that dies off really quick.

S: Freshly ground dark roast coffee. A bit of dark roasted malt coming through, but coffee dominates. Some smokiness too.

T: Dark roast coffee up front followed by roasted, bittersweet chocolate malts. Some sweetness coming through, followed by some hops and more roasted bittersweet chocolate malts. Finishes with a nice lingering bittersweet taste with coffee.

M: Fuller body, softer carbonation. Fairly smooth.

O: Not the biggest coffee beer fan, but this is one of the best ones I've had. Hard to explain, but something is different with the coffee aspect of it, maybe the steeping of the coffee beans? Abv is hidden extremely well.
