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

A: poured into a mug to a nice shade of black with a huge and rocky light tan head with excellent staying power
S: smells a little sweet with some notes of roasted malt and coffee
T: taste is smooth light chocolate flavor with a little coffee and some light roasted malt notes. swallow is a little sweet with more coffee and roasted malt
M: this beer has a medium heft on the palate with soft but adequate carbonation and a drying finish
O: A very good beer that's a pleasure to drink. It isn't a monster of a stout but it drinks nicely and has good flavors.
