A: pitch black leaving a thin tan head that clings to the glass

S: roasted coffee, dark chocalate, sweet fruit notes, cherries maybe

T: dark rich chocalate, roasted coffee, slightly bitter hops in the finish and a warming wave of alcohol, has a good kick, but not overly pronounced
Definitely a sipper

M: nice medium body that has substance but not heavy as say celebrator

O: Really enjoyed this, sipped on the bomber for a couple hrs, only got better as it warmed up, would definitely have it again, blows more tame stouts out of the water.
