Bottle - Pours pretty dark with a ring of tan bubbly head. Nose is milky with some coffee and some lightly roasted dark malt. Taste is the same--roasty finish and a little pepper heat (?). Medium-bodied and well-carbonated. Good, but I was expecting more based on what I’ve heard about this one.

Fresh bottle. Pours thick black with caramel border. No head. Aroma is coffee and vanilla. Also Hershey's chocolate. Lots of coffee in the flavor as well as vanilla and some cocoa. A strange background sweetness I can't identify. Creamy and smooth. Lots of carbonation. Great beer.

(sample courtesy of Yespr) Pours black with little toffee head that recedes quickly. Little regeneration. Aroma is dark and roasted malt with coffee notes and some herbal, hoppy hints. Creamy texture, full body, soft carbonation and a lightly sweet finish. Flavour is dark roasted malt with notes of oak and coffee and otherwise follows the nose.

Pretty good, actually. Fresh cup of (average quality) coffee per glass blends well into the base. Solid.
