pitch black body with a finely-bubbled brown head. intense nose of fresh ground coffee beans. oily and slick coffee character sits on top of a roast-heavy grain bill. itís thick, itís moderately astringent, itís hefty, and it has the green oiliness of rich espresso, complete with the frothy crema character. tasty, but Iím easily impressed by coffee stout.
