Deeply stained mahogany brown color. A finger high top of tan foam lifts its way to a favorably firm setting of lather. It keeps a steady firm skimming across the top the whole time as thick gobby strings of lacing catch the edges.

Nicely set tone of coffee on the nose with bruising roastibility that's frothy, deep, creamy, dark, and bold. What makes gives it a bit more interest is a slight sweetness of molasses and maple nut hint underneath giving a unique, rich tone within deeper wiffs.

Whoa! And Wow! Holy crap this is a damn nice taster! What a super fine and balanced display of deep, bold, coffee roast mixing with some finely blended amounts of cocoa cream pie filling, maple nut, almond, tenderized and caramelized sugar sweetness, nudged in vanilla pods, and even some tobacco-like hints. It has just the perfect amount of earthy roastyness, mixing with all sorts of coffee added extras that boost the intensity and impact of every sip with coffee shoppe flavors. Superb!

The body is insanely smooth and creamy with an intense hold of tone and flavor the whole time thru. What sets it apart is this buttery fluffyness to its backing that really is immaculately woven into the structure of the flavors. The carbonation of a beer is there but somehow it has the impression of drinking a flavored coffee with maple, vanilla, caramel, and cocoa all wrapped on top of some whipped cream fluff while immersed in a full pressed, whole bean, dark Sumatra roasted coffee. It's unwholely easy to drink without a whole lot of thickness like that of the Southern Tiers' Mokah or Choklat. Which are just as complex and delish. But alas this keeps the edgyness of its boldness right on the perfect brink of being able to drink! And drink alot of it you will...
Outstandingly yummy!
