A - 4.0 - Totally opaque black. Decent tan head. Lots of lacing.
S - 4.5 - Straight up delicious. Creamy milk chocolate and maybe some kind of really sweet cookie-ish malt, with a tiny hint of something stiffer behind it.
T - 4.5 - More of that stiffer stuff from the aroma and in greater quantity. Not quite coffee but something approaching that. The barest rumor of fruit something. The immediate afterswallow is dark chocolate. After that comes a momentary wisp of mild char bitterness that's gone quickly. I'm surprised this is 69 IBU. After that are nice warm booze fumes wafting up from down low for a while. Longer term aftertaste is faint char bitterness and sweeter chocolate.
M - 4.0 - Feels initially weighty and silky as you pull it in yet gives way to lightness and a bit of carbonation tingle. Just a suggestion of astringency longer term, which is perfect.
O - 4.5 - I thought I was in for a sweet treat that would be more chocolaty than beery, a novelty, but this was distinctive, mature, and therefore memorable. Really well done. Two thumbs well up. Will definitely drink again.
