Had this on 2010-10-31 at Bulls Head Public House in Lititz, PA. I've had it many times since this initial review. As of the 2013 batch, I lowered my rating a little bit because I've had so many great beers since this initial review that it was necessary. Some additional comments were added on 2013-11-09 to reflect the reasons for the slightly-decreased ratings.
A - Midnight black with a thick, coffee-hued head.
S - Complex but mild aromas of roasted coffee and grain, chocolate, dried fruit and spice.
T - Wonderful. I've had this in the bottle and it is even better on-tap. The smells are reflected in the taste plus some roasted and hop bitterness. Not cloyingly sweet, thankfully. When fresh, the 2013 version is very coffee-forward and I think it will improve with age as the coffee diminishes. I just had a year-old 2012 release and actually preferred it to the fresh 2013 version.
M - Thick/viscous body with just the right amount of carbonation for the style.
O - A perennial favorite for me. I like to stock up with enough of this to savor now-and-again throughout the year until it is released again in the fall. Very satisfying stuff.
Serving type: on-tap
