No head, deep, clear amber in color, very inviting. A flavored coffee with cream (which I love) aroma.
It has a rich, savory taste and strong coffee sort of hickory-vanilla smokey after taste. Has a slightly carbonated feeling in the mouth, smokey, smooth, with lots of body. Well bodied, taste keeps improving as the beer warms in the glass.

Tastes best from a rounded beer 'glass'.

I hope this beer is not going to be seasonal. It will be very missed if that is the case!

Nice dark color creamy texture with just a hint of vanilla to balance out the roasted chocolate flavors. Flavor notes are complex and distinctive while not being overpowering. Also if wonderful balance of aged and fresh brewed flavors. Nice and crisp with with an enjoyable warm bitterness at the end. This is a great brew for someone starting out into darker brews.
