Clear dark brown to black beer, no head. Aroma: sweet malts, caramel, mocha, coffee grit, burnt caramel, vanilla. MF: soft to no carbon, medium to full body. Taste: pretty sweet, heavy caramel, alcohol, sugary, fudge, dark chocolate. Aftertaste: overripe banana, sweet, caramel, dark chocolate, mocha, some coffee, vanilla, sugary. Not bad, but a bit too sweet for my liking.

Bottle shared by the guys. Thanks! Pours a deep black with a dark brown head. The nose is nice, shows a big hit of creamy coffee, on the mellower cocoa side. Some roasted barley and toasted malt as well. Light hopping. On tasting, the coffee is much weaker. Some faint ashy notes, char and cocoa. Herbal coffee. Would like a bigger hit of coffee flavor to match up with the nose. Decent. Bit thinnish body.
