Appearance - The beer was black with a modest tan head crowning the glass.

Smell - The nose is strong coffee.

Taste - My initial impression is that this beer has pleasant coffee notes with hints of vanilla and a certain level of creaminess. The aftertaste is a slightly dry coffee impression.

Mouthfeel - The carbonation level of on target for the style and allows the taste to linger.

Overall - This is probably my second favorite abduction after mocha.
