A - pours a solid black, no light or anything other radiation is getting through this brew. the head is large and is around a medium champagne colour.
S - one can most certainly smell the alcohol right up front, that is what is most noticeable; strong smelling but more subtle roasted malts trail behind the booze
T - A good and complex taste for this one. the hops add a great bitterness to the initial taste on the sides of the tongue, while there is a different type of bitter on the back of the tongue, reminiscent to that of strong coffee The alcohol only becomes prominent for the aftertaste, remaining very manageable on the palate.
MF&D - very smooth, and thick. Not as thick as it could be, but then again, who wants to drink syrup. nothing extraordinary to really note here.
