Bomber from ericandersnavy. Thanks man. Pours very black, though the stream from the bottle had ruby aspects. 3-finger foamy tan head. Aroma is very strong coffee, with a hint of chocolate. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is very smooth coffee, with a hint of smoke, and I’d say definite dark chocolate. Finishes coffee bitter. So where’s the Big Shot Latte? Good stuff!
