A - Insane sludgy black/brown (shades the whole glass a nice earthy brown), beautiful deep brown one finger head and some serious head and sticky lacing
S - Wow, the coffee in the nose just pops and it is lovely, tons of coca, great booze, a hint of chicory, huge sweet and roasted malts, vanilla, molasses, slight spice, woodsy hop, sugar, belgian yeast or maybe anise?, terrior, green earth and a note I can't put my finger on, very pungent almost funk
T - Starts with an almost piney/citrusy hop note, world class coffee comes rushing in (not to acidic, not to roasted, just perfect. weird that pooped out coffee tastes so good), huge milk chocolate that dissipates into an awesome dark chocolate bitterness, creamy smooth (most likely the oatmeal) tons of sweet and toasted malts, can't put my finger on the yeast note, maybe slightly Belgian?, cinnamon, terrior, slight vanilla bean, earth, foliage, slight booze note (but no distinctive spirit) and wet but super fresh wood
M - Full bodied, awesome balance, medium minus acidity, great complexity and very long sweet to bittersweet to earthy finish
D/O - This is a wonderful beer. I read poop and freak out, but this is my biggest surprise of the year so far. I mean I like Mikkeller, but, wow, this is a wonderful stout. If you aren't a fan of pretty big beers, you may want to stay away. If you are willing and ready to try something awesome, get 'er done!
Final thoughts - I was worried about the $15 price tag, but dang, this almost 11% abv stout has made my list of beers I really, really enjoy more than most
