I'll save the detailed A/S/T/M/D descriptions for the experts. Others describe beers so much better than I do. I'm an average hard-working American whose Monday through Friday beer is Genesee Cream Ale (just one or two after I come home from work at 11:30 pm). On the weekends, I have two or three decent beers that I can fit within my budget. Here's my review of this beer:

Bought from Warehouse Beverage in a 22 oz. bomber. Poured into a Guinness pint glass.

Wow, this is probably the best beer I have ever had in my life! Looked like motor-oil. Very thin tan head. Not much carbonation. Unbelievable aromas of vanilla, chocolate, and coffee. EXTREMELY drinkable. Flavors matched the aromas I described above! Amazing that you don't taste the alcohol considering it's 9.4% ABV! The ONLY downside is that it was $13.99. But I guess you get what you pay for. Can't recommend this one highly enough!
