A: Poured a nice ebony with burgundy highlights towards the bottom of the glass. A nice chalky head forms that dissipates to a thin sheen of froth with some thicker patches of foam. Lacing is subdued but present nonetheless.
S: Roasted malt, Chocolate malt, a hint of brown sugar and maybe a little bit of caramel there as well. Nice sweet grain smell.
T: Incredible! Tasted sweet, but not syrupy sweet nor light fruit sweet. It was something akin to dark chocolate with a touch of caramel and brown sugar. Hop bitterness is just barely detectable. It stays around just long enough to cleanse the pallate and leave you wanting another sip.
M:Not heavy, which is kind of what I was initially expecting. It is nice and crisp which complimented the body perfectly. A quenching dark beer. Not so much of a warmer which I didn't altogether mind considering how wonderful it was otherwise.
D: I could easily go through any number of these. This beer is the epitome of great beer, and I would not change a thing about it.

4.24/5 rDev +0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
Look: A Very deep dark brown. Poured into a snifter it appears almost black. Into a pint, it may appear a but more brown, I think. Big fluffy, cream colored head which is retains fairly well.
Smell: Oats, dark roasty malts. A somewhat sugary, creamy smell to it.
Taste: Smooth and sweet, with an oaty, maltiness to it, and a slight bitter finish to it.
Feel: This is excellent. VERY smoothy and creamy texture. The carbonation is just right.
Overall: Excellent beer. Last time I drank this was as dessert after a Steak topped with blue cheese crumbles, so I remember it being sweeter the previous time I had it.
