look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a "tall-tulip" glass from Enegren Brewing Co.

A | BLACK. Looks thick, fat, mocha head spilled over even with a gentle pour.

S | Roasted malts, grains, alcohol. Sweet, almost chocolate, espresso.

T | Crisp start to a dark roasted/burnt espresso & malt. Bitter hop finish to balance the sweet espresso. Little of the alcohol is sensed until after taste. This is a heavy beer.

M | Medium-full bodied, not syrupy, leaves sticky saliva. Bitterness builds on the back of the tongue.

O | A great, strong stout for a cold winter day. I served straight from the fridge, I'd let it warm up just a little before starting. Very strong, very bold, well balanced and not short on flavor.
