Pours a dark brown almost black color with a quarter inch tan head. The head settles out quickly leaving a thin layer of tan foam resting on top. No lacing.
The aroma is sweet with molasses, chocolate, coffee, and dark roasted malts.
The taste starts with a blend of sweet milk chocolate and dark roasted malts, then works into a light dark fruit flavor (maybe prunes?) with a hint of molasses and light coffee in the finish. The aftertaste is sweet with milk chocolate with a slight tartness. I notice a touch of smoke in the flavor as this beer warms.
Medium body with medium carbonation. A creamy, yet thin mouthfeel with a sticky sweetness.
Overall, a nice stout from Dogfish Head. Nice dark flavors that are well balance and enjoyable. A very drinkable stout that would be easy to enjoy on a cold evening. Try one!
