Beautiful Color. A deep, dark brown and a nice, thick head when poured in a glass. The smell hits you right away too, a caramelized coffee smell to me. Very bold flavors too. Small sips let you taste the strong coffee and cocoa and it sticks to your tongue in a wonderful way, no weird or funky after-taste. And I also thought it tasted a little malty after I swallowed it, also good. It has a thicker consistency and lacing around the glass. So Yummy!

Black in color and nearly impenetrable to light. There's a solid half inch of off white head and some nice Brussels lacing. I smell dark malt,roasted barley,and dark chocolate, mocha, and a hint of smokiness. The flavor matches the aroma perfectly. Dark roasted barley,dark malt,dark chocolate and mocha. Dark,bitter,but with a sweetness the jumps in at the end. The mouth is a silky and creamy.
