Black with a creamy brown head. Coffee and chocolate aroma with an alcohol bite. Flavor is dark chocolate, espresso, roasted nuts, and brown sugar. There is a light smokiness as well. Insanely delicious, thick and creamy. Was I really tasting a bit of chili pepper or was it just the alcohol? I really wish I could have known how good this was going to be, because I would have bought more than just one bottle.
