look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Look: Black and opaque with about a 1/8 inch tan head and ok retention with some spotty lace

Smell: Roasted coffee and chocolate

Taste: Roasted malt with a touch of ash upfront. Some subtle chocolate and coffee notes and a slight oatmeal finish

Mouthfeel: Not quite full body with just over mild carbonation and pretty dry

Overall: Pretty damn good beer but I enjoy their imperial stout kbs and cbs to this one. So giving the choice this would be my fourth pick of their stout

Draught @ Headkeeper: This was served in a goblet. It poured an opaque dark brown color. There was a thin tan head that left some lacing. Lots of coffee to the nose. There were also some chocolate and roasty notes. The taste is very nice. Definitely lots of coffee up front. Other flavors include chocolate malt, caramel, grapefruit and pine. No real sweetness, and just a touch bitter in the finish. Very smooth.

Probably one of the most complex beers I have ever tasted. It is amazing when served in the Dogfish Head goblet. The best beer I have ever had.

I enjoy the mixture of flavors that come off the beer. You have to really allow your pallet to just eat up all the amazing flavor that this beer provides. Possibly one of the best breweries in the United States.
