Pours black brown tan head. Smell is sweet roasted malts, almost touch lactose, sweet flavored coffee. Taste is metal, coffee, with a just a touch or tart tinge. Ok but the metallic start and finish to beer makes it a one time venture.

From bottle. Nice coffee aroma with chocolate, molasses, and some carbonic gaseousness. Light oxidation notes. Dark brown-black clear with thin creamy tan lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts moderately sweet with chocolate, coffee, and molasses. Medium hop bitter finish with bitter nutty after and light lingering sweetness.

Happy hour... Bottle. Just terrific aroma of freshly brewed coffee. Taste is the same, nice bitter coffee paired with dark roasted grain. Chocalate bitterness lingers, but similar to previous reviews, body ultimately is a bit thin. A richer body would have made this almost perfect.

First beer I had in Charleston. Deliciously balanced chocolate and coffee character. Rich, rather than sweet.
