look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a bottle with no clear freshness dating; into a pint glass.
Appearance - as dark as 4AM, with the slightest bit of light coming in at the bottom of the glass. Head is a toasted marshmallow pillow! Lacing is phenomenol!
Smell - a blend of cream, milk and dark chocolate.
Taste - more coffee and espresso and less chocolate compared to the nose. Some vanilla and dark chocolate that eventually shows up.
Feel - a coffee and dark chocolate bitterness, followed by a creamy yet roasted marshmallow coat on the tongue. Complex from first sip to last; this has a frame that could handle a much bigger ABV!
Overall - high quality brew, though I have a few others higher on my list.
