Have had this a few times, but now its time to give it a review. Drank with brian23456. Poured it into a Dogfish Head snifter:
A - black with tan foam head that dissipates but keeps a ring of light foam around the edges. Some lacing retention, but not much.
S - milk chocolate, sweet milk. "Darkness with a bit of milk added to it" as Brian put it. Maybe its just me, but it kind of has a hint of chilies. Not hot or spicy, just a peppery flavor that mixes with the chocolate and milk. Perhaps its just the sweetness and the milk flavor.
T - milk chocolate up front, burnt malts and espresso middle and end. Very sweet in the beginning but toward the middle and end its kind of burnt, as in coffee and a bit bitter, as in coffee. I don't drink coffee, but for some reason I love coffee brews.
M - carbonation is perfect. Creamy and smooth.
D - IMO, this is an end of the night beer or after dinner beer. It leaves a lingering espresso flavor and sort of injures the palate, but only temporarly paralysis' it. For 10% it goes down pretty easy, but you can feel it after a few drinks.
