On tap at a Whole Foods in Washington, DC.
The beer is black as coffee with a thin lacing that is a dark khaki-color. Lacing is sticky and well-distributed around the glass.
The aroma is delightfully similar to a sweet coffee drink. Sweet caramel and coffee hit initially, followed by cream and sugar. The coffee aroma is a deep dark roast.
Everything the nose set me up for continues with the taste. The beer is like sweet, creamy coffee with milk. There's some dark roasted malt and coffee presence, as well as sweeter malt. I get hints of oak and barrel-aging, although I don't believe I had the BA version.
This brew was exceptionally thick and creamy, only slightly boozy, and finishes dry and coffee-and dark chocolate-like.
I'd known nothing about this beer before trying it and was just blown away. It's a real treat to discover a new beer and find that it is awesome.

A-Black in the glass, three finger dark brown head with some lacing.
S-Lots of roasted malt. The coffee is nice but might have been better fresh.
T-Starts with nice roasted malt and good coffee, mild chocolate.
M-Medium to heavy, creamy with nice carbonation.
O-A good beer, I can only imagine that fresh the coffee was much better. Even at 6 months old it seemed faded.
