JohnnyBarman brought this one over to my house this past summer. Cheers man!
From a bomber into a mini snifter
Bottled 20 July 2012
APPEARANCE: Dark brown pour yields a one finger, medium looking, light tan head with lousy retention. Black body with no real carbonation evident. Head fades to a faint wisp and ring. A ring remains with a light wisp and leaves hints of lacing down the glass.
SMELL: Coffee for sure, with light roasted notes and some caramel and sweet cream notes. A little mute, but okay.
TASTE: Lots of sweetness up front and all the way through. Cream and caramel with vanilla up front, as well as some stale tasting coffee at the finish. Bold and lingering aftertaste of stale espresso, some roasted notes and sweet cream. Very sweet and stale tasting.
PALATE: Thinner body and higher levels of carbonation. Light on the palate, creamy enough, goes down fine and finishes slightly dry. Too thin, light and carbonated for the style.
OVERALL: Not very good. The aroma was alright, but the flavor was simply too sweet for the style and the stale coffee flavor ruined it. The feel also wasn't up to par. Happy to finally try some Laughing Dog, but this one wasn't memorable. Cheers Johnny!

22 ounce bottle -> Dogfish Head Glass
A - dark black pour with a towering foamy caramel colored head, world class retention, and world class lacing.
S - coffee, chocolate, roasted notes, and dark fruit.
T - sweet vanilla and molasses, chocolate and a burnt wood and coffee finish. Alcohol is hidden very well.
M - good carbonation, very thick, bit of an aftertaste
O - good but not spectacular.

On draft at Churchkey in D.C.
The beer is near black with a small beige collar. The aroma offers a robust coffee nose with dark chocolates. Decent flavor, with bitter chocolates, finishing dry. Medium in body with light carbonation. Overall, this is decent, but not a repeat for me.
Serving type: on-tap
