Poured into a New Belgium snifter
A - Mud meets tar, with a tan light and fluffy head, trace lacing
S - Toasty 'o so toastedness, burned oak, grains, malt and a bit of sweetness
T - Toasty everything and burned oak. Nice hop finish, a bit malty and lots of earth tons, most of which were toasted
M - Medium/Heavy, fluffy carbonated and bitter toasted finish
D - Because of all the toastedness, it is a bit hard to just session this beer. It tends to end up room temp before you're done
Final thought - Nice, toasty. This is a great stout, not the best, but great
