Poured into a large DFH Snifter (number 6 in a series of tastings for the 2010 Holiday). It's sitting on the desk next to the PC monitor as I type this (I've not started the review yet), and I can smell it from here (love the surface area that the large snifter provides for)!
A- Black like liquid coal. Little to no head, which I'm attributing to the large glass and not the brew- as I had one last night in a Pint Glass and it had a wonderful two-finger tan head that slowly went to very nice lacing.
S- Coffee and Chocolate, with hints of hop and malts. Cocoa powder like chocolate hints on the nose and tongue.
T- I am biased here- I bought a case of this brew recently and have decided it's my favorite stout. Coffee and chocolate superbly blended with malt and hop- a flavor combination that is befitting the winter storm that is blowing snow outside as I type this! The kicker (literally) is that the alcohol is hidden very well.
M- Velvety smooth, slight fizz, thick and full body.
D- The most I've ever had in one sitting is three, and every one was as superb as the other. Very drinkable, enjoyable, and hard to keep on the shelf ;-)
