Perfect appearance. Looks like 30 weight oil coming out of the bottle. Forms a thick frothy brown head that leaves chunky complete lace. Very appetizing.
Milky smooth. Texture of somewhere between half and half and heavy cream. Roasted up front with an odd sweet ice cream type body. The backend soft sweetness is a bit of a turn off. Hop presence is non existence. Basically its loads of roasted malts and residual sugars.
Notes: Much better alternatives on the market.

2011 Vintage, poured into a pint glass
A- pours opaque pitch black color with a small creamy dark tan head that eventually reduces to a small layer floating on top, short lasting lace
S- deep, dark chocolate aroma that smells like a fresh fudge brownie, notes or carob & prune with some coffee on the finish
T- dark roasted chocolate up front gives way to a blast of dark fruit with notes of fig, raisin, and even some dark cherry juice, mid-palate continues sweet with brownie flavors and eventually gives a finish of caramel, butterscotch and day old coffee
M- medium-heavy body with moderate carbonation leads to a super creamy mouthfeel and a silky smooth finish, alcohol is hidden very well
O- this bottle was nearly three years old, and it is drinking wonderful. Alcohol is barely detectable and the chocolate and dark fruits have taken over, making it a sweet sipper. If you take the Sam Adams label off of this beer, I guarantee it would be rated higher
