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

Taste= wonderful, chocolately notes, minor coffee notes, at 9% abv there is little alcohol taste. almost a milkshake like taste, very good

Appearance= black, superior lacing, and a retentive head

Smell= very nice, chocolatey and appetizing

Mouthfeel= thick as you would expect for a 9% stout

Overall= Fantastic stout that tastes great and delivers a powerful buzz, 10-14 dollars a 4 pack, will definitely buy again.

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

Poured from a bottle.
Dark, blackish pour with a nicely building head of tan that sits a while with good lacing.

The aroma is strong with hints of chocolate, coffee, sweet malt, pepper and more that I cant get a handle on. Great aroma.

The taste is powerful in a very good way. It hints of floral notes while delivering chocolate tones and some cinnamon hints, coffee again and some alcohol in the back end. Overall a winning combination. As the beer warms it enhances the rich flavors.

It has a creamy feel and well rounded carbonation that enhances its complexity.

This is a great beer. period
