A- Jet black as night body with gathering carbination slowly working it's way to the thin (1/16") head surface while diminishing.
S-Initially I gathered a rather robust roasted coffeelike smell rolling into malty overtones.
T-Again with the roasted coffee, but this time it has a chocolate nip slowly finishing with a very Imp. Stoutlike aftertaste.
M-Heavy and with a slight syrup character leaving my mouth slightly dry as if the beer was crying "sip me again good sir".
D- This beer is very drinkable although with my current income level I will leave this $23.05 ($4 dollars less if you bring your own) dollar growler for special occasions. Kudos to Gabe and the crew!
UPDATE: As I expected the warmer the beer got(above refrigerator temprature) I noticed bigger flavors and a more pungent alcohol content.
Serving type: growler
