Poured from a 22oz bomber into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint.
A- Pours an inky black with a big, long lasting head. This just looks fantastic. The head must be very sticky; it laces and rings on the almost the entire glass.
S- Smells of cocoa powder, black coffee and roasted malts. Almost like sticking your nose in a container of hot chocolate, but not as strong.
T- This is just great. Definite chocolate taste, but not in an overly strong way. There is also some espresso and some prune notes. The malt gives this a strong backbone, and the hops give it a little sharpness on the finish. There's a lot going on here.
M- Nice and smooth, carbonation is just right. Flavors stick to the tongue for a long finish. Starts sweet and ends dry.
D- I drank this bomber easily, and loved it, but wouldn't want more right away. This is a rich beer, the sweetness is plenty for me. I will definitely buy more.
