Reviewed from notes:

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Deep opaque brown. The head is tan in color and very creamy looking. Though it settles a bit, a nice quarter inch crown always remains.

S: Roasted grain, cola, hints of cocoa nibs. Acidic coffee. Very subdued on the nose.

T: Cola, brown sugar, and roasted malts open. Cocoa nibs and milk chocolate. Black, acidic coffee comes mid palate. Some woody and smokey flavors toward the end. Finishes with powdery chocolate and a touch of smoke.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied. Very full, creamy, and silky in the mouth. Low carbonation, but what's there leaves a lightly scrubbing, tingling sensation on the tongue. The mouthfeel is very well done.

O: Very easy to drink, but otherwise it's a bit bland. I certainly wouldn't mind drinking it again, but with so many beers competing for a piece of my wallet during the winter season, it's unlikely that I'd buy it again.
