A: Very dark brown color with a quickly diminishing one finger of fizzy tan head. Looks similar to a coke when you first pour into a glass. Doesn't appear to be much in the way of carbonation. Leaves very little, if any lace.
S: Pretty heavy malt aroma. Chocolate, caramel, molasses, and mild coffee, as well as a bit of sweet cookie-like notes. Also picking up an almost port wine alcohol and muted herbal hops.
T&M: Medium-full body with a silky texture. Flavors are as advertised in the nose, with an emphasis on the chocolate and dark roasted malts. Finishes a wee bit smokey.
D: Overall, I find this to be a very rich and delicious malt dominated brew. Skillfully crafted with a nice depth of flavors that all complement each other well. As a side note, I wonder about the style classification mostly because of the high (8%) abv, but on second thought, who cares about labels. It is good beer no matter what you call it. I would certainly recommend this to anyone, especially those who prefer predominately malty beers.
