The beer pours a pure black in color. There is about an inch of thick, foamy khaki head. The aroma is very strong fresh roasted cold coffee. The coffee is foremost, but behind is some dark roasted malt with char and dark chocolate. The taste is a rich infusion of coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, and a bit of pleasant char. The finish is dry with a light to moderate bitterness. The beer drinks smooth and round with a light tingle of carbonation. This is a very, very nice coffee stout.
