a- dense opaque dark brown with a beautiful creamy/slight rocky tan head. Looks delicious.
s- smells of brown sugar, sweet dark fruits dipped in dark chocolate. a hint of spice. Black forest chocolate cake. This is maybe the best-smelling stout I've had to date. Damn near perfection.
t- dark candy chocolate. Brown sugar and nuts. Thick, dark smoke. Roasted coffee. Oatmeal. As this warms up, it becomes more roasted mocha and unexpected fruits come out like fried banana and a little bit of cherry tartness. The lingering taste is not unlike fried banana dipped in bitter dark chocolate. If you think you know what you're going to taste with this beer, you'll be wrong every time you take a sip. Outstanding.
m- silky smooth and a little bit chewy. there is almost no bite to this beer, but it doesn't need it.
d- what can I say? this is a heavy, rich, dark chocolate dessert kind of beer with an immense and complex flavor. Holy crap is it good, but if you're like me you'll likely feel pretty full (in a good way!) after one bottle of this. Unless you're sharing, of course, but... share? really?
