12oz. brown bottle poured into pint glass.
A: Pours a really deep brown, with dark ruby shining through when held up to the light. A very tightly-bubbled and frothy head starts out gargantuan, but eventually dwindle down to an inch, leaving lustrous beige lace all down the glass. Inch-thick creamy head remains until almost the very end.
S: The nose on this one is almost completely chocolate, by my nostrils. Maybe hints of caramelized sugars and raisins. Spicy alcohol tingles the nostrils on the first sniff.
T: Detecting very dark, non-sweet chocolate, intermingling with a light molasses or brown sugar undertone. A bitter/spicy combination hits the palette as it makes its way to the back of your mouth. Most likely a combination of hops and ginger, with the alcohol peaking its head out, warming you as it makes its way down. A very subtle, but pleasant touch of dark-roast black coffee lingers after.
M: Smooth, creamy, the carbonation is mild and falls to the wayside but adds just enough bite to make itself apparently. This beer goes down wonderfully.
O: Wow. Just wow. I've heard good things about this one, but I always stay a bit skeptical until I try something. This one has made its way into my list of favorites. Rich, complex flavors with a magnificently smooth drinkability make this one of the most pleasant brews to have ever touch my lips. A must try.

A- pours a deep brown color with a hint of burgundy. Nice cream colored head that sticks to the glass and has good lacing
S- I smell coffee or bitter beans like coffee or coco. I don't smell much but I never do.
T- coffee taste. Bitter but not hoppy. I really have no idea. It is good not terrific but very drinkable.
M- medium bodied with clean aftertaste.
O- I enjoyed this beer. Not my favorite but well brewed as usual by Dogfish Head.
