A. looks almost pitch black, not much (if any) light getting through this one. Head is a dark kaki color and leaves no trace of lacing.

S smells EXACTLY like a bag of chocolate flavored licorice.

T Ok now I am getting the coffee AND chocolate. Where the nose was definitely a singular chocolate note I am picking up a lot of coffee taste as well as chocolate and roasty stout notes along with very little bitterness and a moderate to high sweetness.

edit

bottle recommends serving at 42 degrees Fahrenheit at about 60 degrees the beer tasted almost flat on carbonation more booze flavor and bitterness are now noticeable.

F this is where the beer was most lacking.. was ok... but did not quite complement the rest of the beer.. it was a bit to crisp for me and had more sharp carbonation and a thinner mouth feel than I would have wanted.

O Its hard to believe that this thing has 10% ABV because it drinks more like an milk/sweet stout than an imperial. I would consider this a desert beer.. it most certainly delivers the promise that its name implies.

My favorite of the Southern tier stouts. Not as sweet as Creme brûlée but sweeter and smoother than chokolat. This beer can best be described as a liquid tootsie roll. Really enjoyable. Poured from a bomber into my Stone snifter. Will be buying or trading for more.
