A: Completely opaque black color in the glass, pours a cola color out of the bottle. There is a khaki brown color in the head, which is very thin (not even 1/2 a finger).
S: Smells of chocolate and very little else. It's not very strong but the scent is there without needing to completely submerge the nose.
T: It tastes very chocolaty, and roasty. There is very little bitterness, and no offending alcohol burn (10% ABV). I can pick up some of the alcohol flavor the more I drink it, but it's hardly noticeable in the blend of roasted grains and chocolate flavor. I need to especially note that it is blended very well together. The beer as a whole is very complete.
M: It definitely feels present in the mouth. There is very little bitterness, so it's very easy to follow up with another drink. It's not quite as creamy or smooth as other stouts I have tasted.
D: As mentioned numerous times before, it is not very bitter and the alcohol isn't as present as many other high ABV beers in the same class. This is a coy beer, and it is easy to get "pulled under" the weight of the high alcohol content. It is very easy to drink, and I would recommend it to those who enjoy stouts, or are simply looking for a single beer they can drink at the end of the day to unwind.
