From a bottle into an imperial pint glass. It fits! (I knew it would, it was just too much fun to resist.)

A rich dark mahogany that is approaching black. I'm getting excited. Dense lacing.

Chocolate, toast, a hint of vanilla, and a little bit of (french roast?) coffee. Well rounded, the chocolate hints of lactose, but it clearly isn't a milk stout.

Slightly sweet chocolate, warm toasts, hints of vanilla and milk, and not overdone coffee. A hint of bitter on the aftertaste, but it's pleasantly dominated by pale toffee and vanilla. Incredibly pleasing and delicious.

Creamy and velvety in the mouth, carbonation is light enough to not interfere with the body, but still keeps it refreshing.

Delicious beer, would go great with a range of food: Roasted meats, BBQ, smoked fare, chocolate desserts, truffles, ice creams. Well rounded and refreshing example of good, quality beer.
