Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass without a trendy brewers logo on it.
A - head is as thick as the beer, about 2 inches. Beer is nearly black but has a soft brown around the edges when held to the light. The head is a brilliant toffee color. Lacing is quite heavy and inviting.
S - I get coffee, caramel, the barley, and sourdough bread. Smells good but not amazing.
T - really fantastic. Some might think this a stout but its really an ale. The malt is superb but is tempered a bit by the peaty barley. All this heaviness is cut by the carbonation.
M - Really inviting. Thick but not syrupy. Makes you want to keep sipping. The alcohol is well hidden until after you swallow, when you get a nice warmth from the 11%.
As mentioned below, this could use a year of age but its great right off the bottling line. My wife picked this up for me and I will pick it up again. $8.99 for a 22 oz.
