A very excellent stout. I picked this up from a local store on my way to get lunch.

The appearance is classic, very dark. It produced a nice head of foam.

The smell is absolutely fantastic. I pick up hints of chocolate, coffee, and a light hint of some fruit, leaning towards a very light hint of cherry.

The taste is superb. It starts with a nice jolt of flavor that subsides into a coffee-like taste and feel. Low bitterness. Nice and rich.

It drinks very easily. This is a high-quality, top-notch beer.

EDIT: It also goes surprisingly well with the pizza sandwich I bought next door. Very good.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

poured 12oz bottle into snifter.

A - Dark coffee brown with a 2 finger light tan head. Great retention and chunky swaths of lacing. Not sure how it could look any better.

S - Roasted malts, bitter bakers chocolate, charred wood, and some light sweet notes of caramel and milk chocolate.

T - Starts off with a bitter roasted malt and bakers chocolate. There is some sweetness in the middle with milk chocolate and caramel, but the finish is more bitter, with coffee and charred wood.

M - Medium bodied with great carbonation, rich and smooth mouthfeel.

O - Solid shelf RIS, a real classic.
