On tap fresh at a friend's home after going with him to pick up the 1/4 keg.

A - Pours a deep dark black with an amazing and persistent head that never really quits. It just looks really good in the glass.

S - Coffee, roasted malts, chocolate.

T - In addition to coffee, malt and chocolate perhaps a hint of vanilla along with just the right amount of hops to balance out the sweetness.

M - Rich and thick - almost "chewy" with near perfect carbonation.

O - I am always skeptical to very highly rated beers but this one is well deserving. At 6.5% this is not a session beer and I still think this is a little on the stout side but who cares since it's a great beer anyway. My friend paid 120 bucks for the quarter but considered he should get well over 50 pints it's still a great deal.
