In a snifter.

A: dark black with a thin light brown head.

S: strong roasted coffee and malt; some bitterness and a tad boozy

T:starts with the bitter coffee; followed by very sweet chocolate flavors and ends with more coffee and oatmeal flavors.

M:incredibly smooth and creamy; full-bodied

O: Outstanding Stout. The transition between the various flavors is so well balanced you hardly notice. This stout delivers better than the heralded KBS.

12 oz bottle with much thanks to WesM63 that poured opaque black into Duvel tulip with 1/2 finger of tan bubbly head that immediately reduced to small ring, not much lacing at all, held up to the light and nothing shows.

Intense aroma of dark roasted coffee, chocolate, deep roasted malt and toffee.

Tastes like a strong coffee with dark bittersweet chocolate, milk chocolate, roasted malt, toffee and some cinnamon, tiny bit of hops and the alcohol is mostly hidden.

Mouthfeel is on the high side of medium-bodied with a decent amount of carbonation, creamy smooth, milky with lingering coffee notes.

Overall this is so delicious, breakfast and/or dessert in a bottle! Definitely recommended.
