Bottle. Opaque, black liquid with medium, thick tan head. Nice lacing. Aroma of fresh roasted coffee, dark fruits, chocolate, pepper, fruity American hops and roasted bread.

Medium to full bodied with pleasant carbonation and sticky, velvety mouthfeel. Really nice. Some kind of "imperial stout light". Lots of awesome, roasted notes and coffee.
