4.5/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Pours out black with a two-finger, mocha colored head. It left a little lacing.

S - It smelled very chocolaty and malty.

T - It tasted of raosted malts and chocolate. It also had a slight bitter coffee-like taste. An interesting contrast between the sweet chocolate flavors and the bitter coffee.

M - Very soft and smooth. It is a heavy beer.

D - It is a very good stout. It is very powerful in terms of ABV, which is a slight drawback. I wanted to have many more but two was my limit.

4-pack $ 8.99

A: No smoke on opening, aggressive pour into a schooner, jet black, creamy head 1 finger thick and tan, nice retention and lacing
S: Caramel malt, sweet, coffee, boozy
T: Perfect hops, rich malt, nice finish, coffee
M: Thick with perfect carbonation, sticky with thick malted barley but not syrupy.
O: I like this beer! perfect balance, rich, 9%, and not too heavy.

I was looking forward to trying this beer. I like the label. It's made in the USA. What's not to like? I would buy more.

OK, I couldn't save any of 4-pack and there may be a new McHaggis on the way, I highly recommend this beer.
