22oz into pint glass just below room temperature.
Very dark brown with voluminous creamy tan head that, poured vigorously, wells up and threatens to escape the glass. Head actually reminds me of a draught guinness the way it roils up. Generous lacing decorates the glass all the way to 1/4" beneath the rim.
Aroma is cold hazelnut coffee. My mouth is watering.
Taste is sweet mocha iced coffee with hints of chocolate, caramel and vanila. Chocolate in the brief finish; little aftertaste. The sweetness is neither excessive nor cloying and the coffee flavor, though prominent, does not strike me as overstated.
Mouthfeel is very smooth, rich and creamy with little carbonation. There's an intriguing ice cream or milkshake-like sensation.
Drinkability is astonishingly high. I could have several of these. In fact I'm already looking at my half empty glass with concern, since I only have one bomber of this.
I'm really starting to love this brewery.

A - This beer is very dark. When held to the light only a faint ruby glow is perceptible. It is topped with a couple inches of tan head. There is a little lacing.
S - I smell some coffee, but it is not strong at all. There really isn't much else.
T - I get a some coffee and roasted malt. There is a mildly bitter finish.
M - Medium with low carbonation.
O - Full disclosure: this beer has two things working against it. This is my second beer of the evening. The first was a Peruvian Morning with huge coffee smell and taste. This beer lacks compared but still has its own merits. Second, this bottle was purchased in Massachusetts about ten months ago. I may have held on to it for too long. It is decent but not as good as the score indicates. i will revisit given the opportunity for a fresher bottle and a cleaner palate.
