I almost cried. Accidentally poured into a pilsner glass after confusing it with a Founder's Breakfast Stout.
A: Comes out black with with amazingly full, thick head that comes down to a solid finger of well built, beautiful head on top. Tiny beads of lace linger as the drink disappears from the glass.
S: pronounced aroma of chocolate and coffee. Some kind of amazing spiciness is present that isn't like any other beer I've ever had. Fusel burn is picked up when deep breaths are taken.
T: Sweet chocolate comes on strong that eventually settles down to a mellow coffee. Again, that spiciness comes through in the back palate. Not at all bitter and very pleasing.
M: Quite the mouth full of beer, I tell ya! It's thick and filling. It took me a good half an hour to enjoy the whole glass. No dryness, it's wet and delicious. Hardly any carbonation is felt which is surprising after seeing so much head on this beer.
O: I'm revisiting this beer and remember why it was the first high end craft beer that really turned me on to the culture. Man is it good! and the 11.2% ABV is nice too. This is the highest score I've given to a beer so far.
