12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Batch #9363, packaged on September 22, 2009.

A: Black body with a two-finger coffee-colored head.

S: Coffee all up in your grill. No subtlety at all. Not that that's a bad thing, mind you.

T: Major coffee up front, in the middle, and in the back. Also some hints of chocolatey and smoky flavors.

M: Not all that thick.

D: This was the first coffee beer I ever had. And it's still one of the best.
