I'm not sure that I have the eloquence to describe how amazing this beer tastes and smells. I might try to come back to it just to do it justice. But in the mean time:
Pours dark brown with red highlights in the light. Tan head is one to two fingers. Looks delicious.
Smells of very dark and yet sweet chocolate liquor and some coffee.
Taste? The taste is that of pure deliciousness. I love it for it's depth of cocoa and coffee and sweet complex malts... but as I said I do not possess the palette or vocabulary to describe what makes this beer so amazing to me. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful, but trust me; the words "really really good" come to mind, yet don't do it justice.
Feels very creamy at first but becomes just a bit flat. I'd like it to retain that cream like consistency a bit longer. Would be great from a "nitro-tap"
Overall it's one of my favorites and it is a great session beer. I'd be willing to drink it all night.
If I haven't already convinced you to pick up a six pack then you are an idiot. This beer is fucking delicious.
