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

Poured in a proper Guinness glass so that it can be properly evaluated.

Pours a super dark brown/black, holding it up to strong light shows that this is in fact clear with red highlights.

Smell is Wow this is a Stout? Smells intensely fruity and complex like Belgian Strong brown ale. Probably 100 individual smells in this, coffee, toffee, orange, cinnamon, peaches, tutty fruity, and more. Probably one of the most fragrant brews in the world.

Tastes strongly of coffee and chocolate. Fruit flavors are here too, lots of apple, a bit of caramel, earthy flavors like olives.

Mouthfeel is hearty and thick.

Super drinkable. I don't normally really like Stout beer; this brew changed my point of view on this style of beer.

4.24/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Look: A Very deep dark brown. Poured into a snifter it appears almost black. Into a pint, it may appear a but more brown, I think. Big fluffy, cream colored head which is retains fairly well.

Smell: Oats, dark roasty malts. A somewhat sugary, creamy smell to it.

Taste: Smooth and sweet, with an oaty, maltiness to it, and a slight bitter finish to it.

Feel: This is excellent. VERY smoothy and creamy texture. The carbonation is just right.

Overall: Excellent beer. Last time I drank this was as dessert after a Steak topped with blue cheese crumbles, so I remember it being sweeter the previous time I had it.
