look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Black as night and gives no light when held to a source. His head is thick at more than an inch and a heavy tan color.

S - Chocolate and coffee aromas abound.

T - Thick dark coffee flavor on top of a deep chocolate that comes through each pull at different stages.

M - The feel is slightly coarse and light in my opimion. Especially for a high gravity stout such as this one. I really like a good chewy stout, especially when the flavors here are so exceptional. There is a stickiness in the finish on my lips which I do enjoy.

~ Overall this is a very good beer. There are few stouts that can brag such a robust palate. If you haven't tried this stout, you need to.
