Received today from JohnGalt1 as an extra(!)
My BA 1 year birthday beer

A - Absolutely jet black used motor oil color, yielding nothing else no matter how close I held it to the light. Dark brown head, one of the darkest I've seen, fades to a patchy eighth inch. Lots of little lacing bubbles. Would have liked a bigger head but still I've never seen a blacker beer.

S - Intense chocolatey roasted malt, creamy, sweet and slightly bitter. Grainy earthy malts like oatmeal or wheat. Very creamy.

T - Starts with a chocolatey creamy taste. Light malts, not extremely toasty but smooth and grainy. Very mild bitterness, nothing like a normal stout. A brief hit of sugary chocolatey sweetness, not much else before the finish: a grainy chocolate pudding flavor with a little bit of toastiness.

M - Creamy, not very thick, and almost no carbonation, a little disappointing for me but it is what it is.

D - Overall very smooth, creamy, chocolatey, rich, luxurious etc. but honestly not enough beer-like characteristics for me to fully enjoy this. Maybe I prefer regular breakfast stout. I'd gladly drink this again though.

Very glad I got a chance to try it though. Thanks Toby.
