A: Pours pitch-black with a thick head. Darkest brown head I've seen in a long time - almost matches the beer color initially. Fades slowly with excellent and heavy lacing everywhere.
S: Loads of roasted malt character. Chocolate, coffee and a touch of char. A hint of anise. Very creamy, almost oatmeal stout-esque.
T: More heavy roasted malt. Up front it's mainly chocolate. Fades into a roasted coffee and bitter char. Super creamy and smooth. Get a touch of anise in the finish with a long lasting coffee, char and bitter dark chocolate lingering aftertaste.
M: Heavy, thick, creamy, smooth. Awesome. One of the best I've ever had in this department.
O: Wow, what a great RIS. Roasted malt character is thick, heavy, pervasive and oh so nice. Super thick but not cloying or syrupy. Creamy beyond belief. Amazingly drinkable, especially for a 10.5% brew. This is one of the best I've ever had, period.
