look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A: Almost black face-on, with a thick head of toast-colored foam that dissipates to a lace across the surface and up the sides of the glass. Held up to the light, I see it is a clear, dark mahogany.

S: Toasted bread, with a sweet caramel note. Not strong.

T: It took me a few sips to really take in all that I'm tasting, because it's so much at once. It's sweet caramel and buttery up front, and that lasts through to the finish, but along the way a slight acidic tartness appears for a moment, followed by a bitterness that's a mixture of hops and burnt grain. Maybe a hint of coffee as an afterthought.

M: Good carbonation and moist up front, but with a lingering dryness that makes the mouth long for the next sip.

O: Top of the class! Really, this has me wanting to go back and mark down prior stout reviews (i.e. Guinness Foreign Extra Stout), but instead I'll give this one top marks. At the price, this won't be an everyday drink, and it shouldn't be. Something this good should be reserved for special occasions or special friends.
