I poured into a 3 Floyds pint glass from a 12oz. bottle. That's good karma already!
A: Inch thick head upon first pour. The frothy, creamy consistency stayed on the beer throughout the session. Not totally pitch black, but the darkest brown you could imagine. Beautiful beer!
S: Mild roasty coffee with a prominent hazelnut quality. Sweet, without being too.
T: Perfectly balanced - almost more of a stout, due to the lack of BBQ-like smoke flavor that I usually associate with this style. I detected a flash of fig-like fruitiness on the finish. Ahhh...
M: The creamy thickness of the beer cannot be bragged about enough. ABV is virtually undetectable.
D: ABV is reasonable and the ingredients perfectly balanced. I think I'll have another!
Overall: This is one of those rare beers that defines the style. Awesome and then some!
