If you get to that level, the mouth is viscous enough to make you bite but not chew like a hefty barley wine. The texture is interesting, sharp, but unburdened by the carbonation. The spectrum of flavors rains all over the palate from front to back, soaking it in deep, decadent bitterness. It reminisces of a cup of morning glory and an oh-I-shouldnt-try-this-because-I'm-on-a-diet-and-cant-eat-just-one artisanal chocolate. The lacing isn't over the top, lending itself nicely to the fluffy, airy head that it came from.
