A - Jet black with a fair sized bronze/tan head; beautiful.
S - Rich chocolate, subtle coffee and tied together by roasted malts.
T - Lots of dark roasted malts up front with a chocolate inspired sweetness throughout. At this high ABV, the boozyness is subtle--but detectable.
Beyond all of these tastes, I get some dark fruits in the background, which add a bit more and make this stout truly fantastic.
M - Bold, big body while remaining creamy and smooth.
O- I enjoy this version each year that it comes out. I drink some immediately, and cellar a few bottles for 1-2 yrs... wonderful when fresh & exceptional when aged.
