22 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Enjoy by date of 1/15/14. Consumed on 11/20/13.
A - Brown approaching black with a half finger of light brown small bubble head. Head lasted for a while and left well-defined rings around glass as liquid receded. Visually appealing.
S - Cream, vanilla, dark chocolate, and roasted coffee beans. No booziness.
T - Wow. Chocolate covered espresso beans crossed with a damn good cup of coffee with a beautiful vanilla sweetness. Phenomenal. Lasting dark chocolate/vanilla sweetness with a slight hint of dark fruit. Perfectly mellow. Hides ABV, yet warming.
M - Smooth as silk, creamy, and a wonderful tingle in the mouth.
O - I loved this. I will buy it whenever I see it and recommend you do the same.

Poured a black body with two finger tan head that dies slow with no lace. Aroma ranges from coffee, vanilla, espresso, milk/lactic qualities, hints of milk chocolate. For a heavy beer the alcohol is hidden and the beer is rather light and smooth. More sweet than dry as the roasted coffee notes are easily noticed but the beer seems to slightly dominated by milk/vanilla sweetness. An enjoyable beer on its own or as dessert.
Serving type: on-tap
