A Black as night, pours a spectacular khaki tan head disipitates to a satisfactory thin layer, unbelievably thick and syrupy
S Tons of piney hops come straight to the nose, bitter dark fruits but only subtley, some chocolate.
T Holy cow. I like to refer to a beer like this as a sock-knocker-offer. Just an amazing blend of caramel, sweet chocolate, dark cherries, plums, vanilla, burnt malts, roast, just the right amount of oats to produce a perfect creamy texture. There's just so much here and it all mixes together in an oblivion of perfection.

This beer is one of a kind, its so big and bold and flavor, yet so soft on the palate that I nearly shed a tear of sheer joy
Thanks treyrab for sharing thos one with me!
