look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a pint glass from a 12 oz bottle.

Appearance: Dark. Dark as my soul, one could say. Big brown head that lingers. This beer looks like it means business.

Smell: Definite coffee smell to it with some dark chocolate. Malty, too.

Taste: Hmm. Chocolatey more than coffee. A little bit boozy.

Mouthfeel: Based on the appearance and smell, I would have expected this to linger a little more in my mouth between sips. That said, it's plenty tasty so I'm not complaining. Really, I'm not. Especially as it makes me drink more of it to write this review. I'd agree with the "dry" finish that others have mentioned.

Overall: Yeah, I think I'll be adding this to my "standards." Get some of this cellared and see what happens. Based on what I've read from others who cellared, it should age very nicely. I'm excited.
