You have to take into account the cost of this beer ($1) in your rating!
For the price, it is an outstanding stout, with a great, almost creamy flavor. It would probably go best with a dessert, chocolate and sweet, than with a meal. This is a good beer to try as you can purchase single bottles from Trader Joe's.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured at room-temp from a bottle into a mug.

Appearance - Dark umber. not completely opaque; showed a 1/2" long-lasting head of foam which eventually left strands of lacing.and a ring of bubbles which never disappeared throughout the whole drinking of the glass

Smell - Strong. Earthy. Chocolate, oats, honey.

Taste: Chocolate and oats up front. Orange, malt and grains in the back end. I also kept tasting hints of cherry, and rose.

Mouthfeel: Like cream: heavy and smooth, and lasts for a craaazy long time. Light carbonation which lasts for about a second-and-a-half. As I waited for quite a while between taking drinks, I found it warms the mouth and makes your saliva feel extra thick (if given such time.) For me, this was quite an enjoyable feeling.

Overall: I bought a six-pack of this for a beer tasting party, expecting it to be good. I did not expect it to be this good. A great brew for a slow, enjoyable drink, and for the price, a real deal for such quality. I will be buying this again.
