I haven't been the biggest Stout fan but I have heard nothing but high praise so I decided to give it a whirl. And I must say I am very pleased that I did.

Appearance: Oil..thick, black motor oil with a very thin brownish colored head. My wife thought it looked gross, but to me there was something very appealing about this one. That dark, rich tones gave away that it is going to be packed with flavor.

Smell: Coffee, coffee, some more coffee and a slight hint of some alcohol. As it sat for a few minutes I was then able to pick up slight hints of chocolate, but coffee was the dominant scent.

Taste: COFFEE!!!! Like a nice, rich cup of iced coffee with just enough chocolate to make this feel like an after dinner drink or dessert. Absolutely delicious.

Mouthfeel: It was smooth and silky on the tongue. A velvety texture making it feel all the more like a dessert than an actual beer.

Overall: I can say I definitely see the hype behind this beer and it absolutely deserves all the praise. As I have said before I have tried a few stouts but was never truly a fan of any of them. But if I can find some more out there that fall along the lines of this my beer haul will most definitely include some stouts.
