A - This is a very nice looking brew; the color of black coffee topped with a huge long-lived mocha head that looms large but surprisingly only deposits minor lace.
S - Big fudge and graham cracker notes leap from the glass from start to finish. It is almost reminiscent of s'mores, without the sweetness of the marshmallow... but the fudge, graham cracker and campfire are all there. While the aroma is not terribly complex, it is immensely enjoyable.
T - The promise of the nose is fulfilled in the taste. It is pleasantly roasted, with a tea-like hoppiness and lots of chocolate on the finish. The hoppiness is really the only newcomer to the flavor party, and it is a sublime addition. The roasted chocolate graham cracker flavor deftly straddles the line between sweet and savory, tending toward the latter. Again, this is a tremendously enjoyable brew.
M - Smooth, deliciously rich, and very nicely effervescent.
D - Very nice stuff here; easy-drinking, substantial, complementary with cuisine; what more could you ask for?
