I bought this beer as part of a great lakes variety pack. Poured into a sidel.
Appearance- Very dark- as close to black as it can get with out being completely opaque. A rich creamy head leaves excellent lacing. What a pour!
Smell- Sweet coffee chocolate and caramel notes dominate. Malty and delicious, very stout like.
Taste- Blew me away. Bitter/dark chocolate mixed with coffee flavors. Its fairly sweet and creamy but not at all unbalanced. The hops are present, but don't do anything to take attention away from the malt.
Mouthfeel- Very very smooth with a medium-thick body. Just enough carbonation.
Drinkability- I've only tried a handful of beers that rival this in terms of drinkability, especially on a cold winter day. This beer achieves a rich, complex, well balanced flavor without being overwhelming. Just what the doctor ordered.
