4.46/5  rDev +15.8%
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.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass. Pours a very dark charcoal, with a one and half inch tan head, that coats the sides of the glass with sticky lace. Smell is biscuit, oats, chocolate, worthers, vanilla, and coffee beans. Taste is starts will worthers and vanilla and finishes with coffee and oats really a nice flavor when drank at close to room temperature. Body is medium for its average size, perfect carbonation, a touch dry as you would expect, and easy to drink. This is a excellent stout and a excellent price.
