A: Poured out a very dark brown that was opaque. Nearly black. Two fingers of creamy brown head with good retention and heavy lacing.

S: Boozy caramel and chocolate.

T: Up front, it is very smooth with vanilla and chocolate flavors and it progresses to an earthy hop that leaves you with a bitter finish. Smooths out as it warms a little. Alcohol is hardly even detected.

M: Heavy body that is very sticky. Low carbonation.

O: Smooth is the word for this one. Worth the price for any stout drinker. The "2012" edition I drank even came in a collectible re-cappable bottle. I liked that it was already bottle aged for me so I didn't have to cellar it for optimal drinking.
