best beer I've had yet. It is a beer work of art. It was both smooth to drink and with a ever pleasant aroma to the mix. With strong hints of chocolate, and an earthly darkened barley taste. Its an great beer to try and to share with friends and family.

Poured from bottle to Guinness pint glass at about 52F.

Appearance: Dark, black coffee. Tan, velvet head.
Smell: Definitely get the coffee and malts. Nice roasty smell. Definitely get the hoppiness coming through as well.
Taste: Head is very creamy when it hits the lips. Get the roasted malts right from the beginning and then it goes into the coffee and finally the hops. Very well balanced though and none of them stand out above the rest.
Mouthfeel: Head is very creamy. A thickness to the overall beer, it's great. Very smooth.
Overall this is super. The head, even though it is not nitrogenous, is very similar to the draught in that way. Lovely and glad it's in the states.
