A: Black with a very thin brown head that fades real quick to noghintg.
S: Great unique aroma. Very rich. Coffee but mostly chocolate, but heavy vanilla with some cherries, plum and raisins.. Very sweet. Booziness creeps in with an oakiness and roasted malts.
T/M: Really smooth and heavy. Very little carbonation which works in this very rich beer. Starts off all chocolate for a while, developing into roasted malt, vanilla then comes in and mixes with cherries and rasins. Finsish is smoky and oaky and looong with the hop spiciness coming to the front. Big and fat and chewy though the slightest bit hot.
D: This is a huge fat and chewy beer meant to be sipped.
Ovr: I've been drinking a lot of oatmeal stouts recently, Devil Over a Barrel, and KBS, and this is right up there with all of those. Definitely heavier than all of them, and more full bodied. Great great great beer.
