This is and always has been one of my top 10 beers, so I'll try to do it justice. One of the great things is that it's easy to get and usually in good condition because of the nitro-can or whatever.
A: Beautiful, black-brown with a thick brown head that doesn't rise too far. Head retention is lengthy.
S: Chocolate! Chocolate and malt. A lot more chocolate aroma from the tap version than the can, which is my usual serving.
T: Wow, lots of chocolate and roasty malt. It's not bitter, but the flavor is very deep and rich. Sweet.
M: This is a thick beer. Unlike a lot of the watery stuff I normally drink, this one feels very substantial.
D: High. This beer is very easy to enjoy and session. Only downside is that it's pretty heavy and will fill you up.
One more note, the bar I had this at last night was doing some kind of Valentine's special and mixed it with Raspberry lambic. I had one of those and I will not be repeating that. If you are a lover of sweet beers, you might give the concoction a try, but I just stuck with the stout straight for the rest of the night.
Serving type: nitro-tap
