4.18/5 rDev -0.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 12 oz bottle purchased from Total Wine in Columbia, SC.
Pours an opaque very, very dark brown with a billowy smooth tan head that quickly dissipates to a fine line.
Smell is of toasted malts and chocolate. Nice roasty character.
Tastes of coffee and chocolate...nicely roasted. Leaves a very slight bitter aftertaste, which is nicely complimented by the roasty flavor and balances out nicely.
Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. Nice carbonation. The dry finish sets up perfectly for another sip. Very drinkable.

4.2/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a bottle into a snifter at around 45 degrees Fahrenheit
Appearance: Almost black with little to no tent when put up to the light. Two finger frothy tan head with ton of lacing
Smell: A tart, almost wine-like aroma straight out the fridge, but as it warms it mellows out and I pick up chocolate, oats, toffee, and a hint of roasted malts
Taste: Dark fruits upfront with a chocolate and oat finish. Very slight roasted malt presence
Mouthfeel: Medium body; Smooth as silk with a dry finish
Overall: I had the Taddy Porter and this back to back and find the two very similar, with this having a oat character of course, less dark fruit, and a more pronounced chocolate and toffee character. Both are solid offerings if a little light. However, SS do make some of the smoothest beers I've had. I prefer this over the porter, but ill stick with the imperial stout over both of these for now. Next up is the nut brown ale
