A: The beer is nearly jet black in color - traces of brown are visible near the edge of the glass when viewed from above into a light source. It poured with a quarter finger high tan head that died down a bit, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface, a collar around the edge and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of coffee beans are present in the nose - these become a little stronger as the beer warms up.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the coffee flavors are a bit stronger. There is also a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has nearly a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and has pleasant, mild flavors of coffee beans.

Served on nitro-tap at The Lower Depths in Boston, MA

A: Pours an opaque yet clear very dark brown (almost black) in color with light amounts of gentle visible carbonation along with cola brown, garnet red, and very dark amber highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense creamy light tan head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of roasted coffee over the top of slightly lighter roasted malts. Light hints of bittersweet chocolate are present as well.

T: Upfront there are moderate to strong flavors of dark roasted malts and coffee. Underneath there is a lighter presence of bittersweet chocolate and hints of vanilla. Moderate amounts of bitterness which fade after a short amount of time.

M: Slightly heavier than medium bodied with light to moderate amounts of carbonation. Creamy.

O: I am a big fan of this beer on-nitro - it does not appear to suffer the thinness of the body that others observed when being poured on nitro (it was just downright creamy). Lovely flavors of coffee come through but are not overpowering (even had a buddy that does not really like coffee agree that this one was great).
