Poured into New Belgium globe
A: Dark as a moonless night. No light passes through whatsoever, just how a proper stout should be. An aggressive pour yields a healthy amount of frothy brown head that fades, but laces nicely.
S: I get a lot of dark chocolate, some coffee, and a nice almost fruity sweetness. A little booze comes out at is warms.
T: Deep dark chocolate and coffee, perfect amount of bitterness to balance the sweetness. Delicious!
M: Body more on the heavy side, but smooth and creamy.
O: I'm spoiled to have this regularly available in my area. Excellent example of the style.
