look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

A: Pours a translucent deep ruby, slightly brown, with a three-finger fluffy tan head. Tons of lacing all along the glass as the head slowly fades.

S: Coffee and chocolate. Chocolate and coffee. Brown sugar and raisins. Prunes.

T: The front is sweet, but there is a non-unpleasant acrid note due to the roast malt. The center is a sea of chocolate, and the finish is dry and bitter. (Any resemblances between that finish and my personality are purely coincidental.)

M: Surprisingly watery and light in body, in spite of the good carbonation. (There is a heat wave here now, so that's not entirely unwelcome, but it is unexpected.)

D: The expense is the only barrier to this being a perfect session beer.
