The beer pours black through and through. There is a tall, foamy, thick head that is the dark tan to light brown in color. The aroma is a wave of cold-pressed coffee, with underlying dark roasted malts, in particular some chocolate and dark cocoa notes. The taste follows the aromas directly, waves of coffee, with lesser, but complementary, notes of dark roasted malts, chocolate and char. It has a full enough body for all that flavor, but not heavy in any way, with tingling carbonation. This is a very well done coffee stout.
