Black with a thick tan head. Aroma is big coffee, almost like an espresso. Flavor is coffee with a strong bittersweet finish. Main complaint is lack of body, bit otherwise excellent.

This is the best thing Iíve had from Starr Hill. It pours dense, dark brown with a little bit of tan head. The is sweet coffee, maybe a little chocolate in the background. The flavor is really sweet, smooth, rich, and delicious. The finish is a little watery, but that ends up working in the beerís favor. Sweet beers can grow cloying before the last sip, but this one stayed smooth and enjoyable. It suggests a number of possibly damn good food pairings. Iíll have this again, hopefully at a restaurant.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body under a one finger fizzy light brown head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is very nice, sweet cream, fresh brewed coffee, caramel, roast, smells like dessert in a glass to me. The flavor is roasty with a fairly restrained sweetness given the heavy lactose in the nose. The coffee and chocolate notes are really nice as well. Maybe a bit thin in the body and on the finish, but thatís being a bit petty. Pretty nice beer, but then again, Iím a bit of a sucker for coffee beers.
