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

Opaque black body. Brown silken head with small bubbles dispersed. Great lace and good retention. Some maply syrup coloring comes through at the edges.
The smell is complex with scent of chocolate, vanilla, sweet malts, licorice, coffee beans and pleasant hops.
Amazing malt and chocolate taste. Mildly toasted vanilla with strong hops. Great aftertaste, some, roasted bittersweet cocoa beans and good hops.
Full and sturdy mouthfeel. Powdery somehow. Some coating and very slick sensation.
A very smooth and enjoyable brew.
