A - Kind of a small head that doesn't retain too long. Yet, still appealing in appearance.

S - Notes of chocolate and espresso.

T - This beer has a very unique taste and feel in that it has the "bigness" of a barrel-aged stout, without the burn. I keep waiting for it to come, because of the boldness of flavors and abv, but it never comes. which is ok. It gives you a slightly different experience. The taste is superb.

M - Full bodied, creamy, substantial.

O - A superb beer that doesn't disappoint. I liked my second one (days later) than my first. Maybe I pulled it from the fridge too soon on the first because I couldn't wait.
