Pours dark brown from a bottle with a medium tan head that dissapated fairly quickly. The araoma is of coffee, chocolate, and a bit of black licorice but none of these aroma's really popped. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and carbonation is a little higher than I would have liked. The tastes of coffee, chocolate, a bit of vanilla but there is a slight sour that comes through that was unexpected. All in all this is a decent beer. We'll give it a break because this particular bottle is one month away from expiration. I will revisit this brew with a bottle that is closer to the brew date and see if there is a difference.
