A - Pitch black. almost no head to speak of. A gentle swirl conjures up a small cap. Minimal lacing is occasionally left in small patches.

S - Really shines in this department. Smells amazing! Completely inviting with sweet, roasted caramel malts. Lots of chocolate.

T/M - Comes through as expected. Loads of sweet chocolatey caramel toastiness. Mild hint of raisin. Low carbonation still provides enough creaminess to be delightful. Definitely full-bodied.

O - Found this to be quite delicious. I would love to have a few more of these handy.

Served in a Dogfish Head snifter.

I've been meaning to revisit this for so long, as I really enjoyed it back in my college days. Let's see if things have changed (they have been known to, mind you): It pours a bleak obsidian topped by a finger or so of golden brown foam. Damn right. The nose comprises darkly-roasted malts, chocolate syrup, light char, caramelized sugar, and a touch of dark coffee. The taste follows pretty closely, with some mild hints of dark fruits and raisins somehow finding their way through the din of roast and chocolate. Nice. The body is a light hefty, with a light moderate carbonation and a chewy feel. Overall, for once, my memory was dead-on. This is a fantastic stout, one I wish I ahd regular access to. Get some!
