Poured from a pint bottle into a Duvel tulip.
A - Smooth, inky black that shows minimal translucence in the light. inch or so of tan, foamy had settles into a collar. little lacing.
S - roasty malts, candied brown sugar and chocolate, dash of coffee. Almost reminiscent of fresh baked cookies; A very decadent aroma.
T - Milky sweetness plays the backbeat to the upfront medley of chocolate, toffee, roasted malt and coffee. Not really that sweet, but enough to give it the dessert beer vibe.
M - Very peppy on the carbonation, adding a lot of levity to the medium-light body. A very ethereal stout.
D - Mmm...Oh so smooth and easy drinking. Low ABV and great taste make this such an easy sessioning choice or to compliment dessert. I kinda wish I had a brownie sundae or chocolate cake to go with this.
overall - A very pleasant treat. Milky & malty sweet combining with stout flavors to make something totally appropriate for dessert. now to seek out some chocolates to pair it with.
