Purchased at Wegman's in Warrington, Pennsylvania
Purchase Price - $8.99/4pk
Served in a Dogfish Head Signature Glass
A - Dark, opaque (almost black) color. Very little head but a nice, brownish, cream colored ring around the edge. Nice lacing left on glass on the glass as I drink it down.
S - First aroma is that of coffee. The alcohol is also very noticable right after pouring. As it warms up, the other flavors (malts, chocolate) begin to make an apperance.
T - Nice combination of coffee, molasses, and a smokey (burnt malts?) taste. The chocolate taste is noticable but not as much as I would have expected from the name. Alcohol is right up front during the first sips. After it warms up, the alcohol is noticeable although not as much.
M - Nice amount of carbonation. Not overly heavy but since it is a stout, a naturally thicker feel on the tongue.
D - This is a really good stout. Not a session beer by any means but a beer to be enjoyed slowly. I tastes even better as I let it warm up.
Overall - A hit with me. IPA's are still my favorite but a nice, dark stout is always a good thing to offset that hoppiness that I enjoy. This is a well balanced beer that I will be purchasing again. A pleasant surprise since I purchased it without reading any of the previous BA reviews.
