Very dark in color. Roasted malts, warm finish. High alcohol without noticing it. Gets better as it warms up a bit. Great beer to enjoy in cold weather.

Dark heavy body. Almost no head. Big complex flavors. Fig, prune, vanilla, dark fruit, smoke. Heavy roasted coffee, marshmallow, subtle spices, some brandy on a slightly boozy finish. Extra long finish, sweet but not too sweet. Good stuff

12oz bottle at home - Palo pours an intensely deep brown with a tan head that fades rather quickly. Aroma is smokey vanilla, molasses, wood, mocha, and some booze. Palo drinks smooth with flavors of cinnamon, sweet brown sugar, and earthy figs. This is one tasty big beer!

Bottle from 16 Tons, Eugene. Thought that I had rated this already, guess not. Along with Yeti and John Barleycorn, one of the best values in bigger beers. Pours an opaque brown, little to no tan head. Aroma woody, smoky, rich, licorice, booze. Body thick, rich and full with just the barest hint of warming. Just superb.

Tasted on draft. Pours a dark dark brown almost black with a beautiful tan head with great lacing. Incredible looking beer. Aroma with sweet notes of caramel, roasted malt, coffee. Taste up front is sweet caramel, coffee and chocolate. That gives way to bitter notes. The end is a slight alcohol burn but definitely hides the 12%. Huge complex beer. Pretty full bodied with a bit of a sticky mouthfeel. Overall a great beer.

Black in color with a thin-tan colored head. Awesome lacing that coats the side of the glass. Woody aroma. There is a citrus to the aroma with a malty finish. As the beer becomes room temperature banana comes out in aroma. Very creamy texture. There is a smokey finish. There is liquior in the taste. Average carbonation. There is a a hint of a caramel in the taste. This was a very enjoyable beer. Alcohol percentage was high but the beer hid it well.

Draft to taster. Looks good; a fairly opaque dull black with tan lacing. Smells solid; semi-sweet, malty, and roasty with a notable wood presence. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. An interesting beer.

Iím a DIPA fan. The first time I bought a single bottle of PSM I was very impressed, so I subsequently bought a four-pack. But as I go through it, I find that the alcohol tends to have a an off-putting, metallic edge to it. My enthusiasm is waning.
If you like roasty coffee and chocolate notes with a lingering sweetness, you should go for PSM. It just takes me too far afield from my DIPA tastes, of which Dogfish Head 90 Minute is the model.

Very good stout. I was surprised by the complexity of flavors produced while.slowly sipping this beer. It was pricey but well worth it!
