12oz acquired locally, enjoyed from a allagash 49cl glass.

a - none more black, frothy foamy off white head that hung out for the full adventure and left milkshake like lace.

s - nose is fairly nutty with a nice roast chocolate.

t/m/o - opens up with deliciousness...I mean this beer kills it. Great roasted chocolate with a fairly forward nuttiness. Almost tastes like a peanut butter beer...must be the Belgian sufpgars and the hopping (this is a fairly fresh bottle as I understand it). Super easy drinking while having the body of an oatmeal stout. Really good. Belgian stout indeed!
