Bottle. Classic pour ... ruddy black with a quick-to-rise tan, fizzy head. The initial aroma is somewhat restrained, but once the consumption begins, I get a sturdy quotient of boldly roasted malt and coffee. Interesting consistency -- lighter than you might expect, but also well-matched to this easy-to-drink toasty stout. Well done! (#4414, 12/19/2011)
