A: Pours a very prodigious head of tan atop a deep brown/black body. Two fingers of head that really stick it out leaving residual up the side of the glass at least a half inch and in the glass until near the end.
S: Smells like cocoa. Straight up. Like expected and as should be. Not hot chocolate, actual decent cocoa powder. Some malt, and distinguished heat.
T: Baking chocolate. Bitter chocolate flavors that are right up my alley, but as the sole driving force of the beer lack complexity. A thoroughly satisfying taste experience, but not great.
M: Carbonation (rare) is a bit much on this for a heavy stout. Great richness, but the crispness intrudes on the expected richness of a great stout. Very good, and very characterful though.
D: Excellent drinkability. Could absolutely sip on a few of these in a night.
EDIT: WTF! This is 10%? Just bumped the drinkability to 5 for the fact that... well see above!
