Bottle: Pitch black with off white head. Neutral aroma but potent taste! Starts with a strong coffee (expresso) taste which mellows out into a hoppy refreshing ale. Food Pairing: Belgian Waffles from Mopelia right next door to the micro brewery! Or make you vanilla ice cream float (Vaca Negra in El Salvador)

This black coffee ale is nto for everyone, but as a coffee lover I like that the coffee is neither burned nor overly bitter and that the flavor is almost more chocolaty than coffee-ish. Its a pretty beer, with a lighter body and mouthfeel than I expected for the appearance.
