A- Looks like motor oil while it's poured into a glass. Completely opaque dark black. Brown head that dissipates quickly, very little lacing.
S- Very rich, smooth coffee and dark chocolate aromas. Hints of mild sweetness and a slight presences of alcohol.
T- Creamy, mild chocolate, vanilla, dark fruit, and premium coffee flavors. There is a linger hop bitterness at the end. The flavors stay on the tongue long after each sip.
M- Extremely thick, one of the thickest beers I've had. There is a creamy quality and an alcohol presence. Low carbonation.
O- One of the greatest examples of the style.

From a bottle into a pint glass. Had this one about a month. I wanted to wait until I could enjoy it for a while after the kids went to bed. Here goes
A: absolutely pitch black. A thin layer if dark brown head that sticks around for a while. Thin lace as the foam recedes.
S. An absolutely mouth watering combo of dark chocolate, malts, and raisins. I could literally smell this beer all day. I can't wait to get that first sip.
T: I had this beer at 59 degrees out of my beer cellar. The tast follows the smell exactly. The best I can say is Hershey's dark chocolate and an oatmeal raisin cookie all in one!
M: full flavor coats the mouth completely but still really easy drinking!
O: the only markdown I gave this beer was in appearance because I like I bit more head on my beer. Honestly after drinking it I feel guilty for even that small markdown! Bottom line...buy this beer!
