Black Toad Distinctive Dark Ale

I got this at Trader Joes.  It is brewed by the Josephbrau Brewing Co. of San Jose, California.

This 5.3% ABV beer pours very dark brown to black, with a hint of ruby and only a touch of translucency around some of the edges.  The aroma is dark roasted malt, slightly malted milk and vanilla.  It tastes like a strong coffee flavored ice cream drink.  It has elements of sweetness and creaminess, but finishes with a coffee like bitterness.
