4/5 rDev -11.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours an oily, coffee black color with a very minimal medium brown head which dissipates quickly.
Smell: Layers of roasted coffee and chocolate, hints of malt and nuts and just a slight bit of caramel.
Taste: Very strong and complex flavor. Black coffee up front with hints of dark chocolate. Everybody else seems to have found the oatmeal in the flavor but I never located it. A high amount of bitterness at the finish, but not overpowering.
Mouthfeel: Somewhat thick and chewy, yet still a little oily and slick. A bit of a carbonation bite up front.
Drinkability: Great drinkability for a higher ABV beer. You could down a couple in one sitting. More than that and the alcohol will start talking.
Overall: Very good stout overall. I would definitely recommend this one to any coffee lover who also enjoys stouts.

On principle, I am hesitant to rate a beer as perfect. This is the tastiest stout I have ever had. Is it the best? I am not sure, and the only reason I'm not sure is that there are still other beers out there in the world. It pours heavy, no head and minimal lacing, into a tulip glass (next time I'll use a snifter). It tastes sweet, and bitter, and chocolatey - I sense coffee, but on my palate the chocolate is more present - and heavy. Like I really could have it for breakfast. And by God the next time I don't have to work and my kid is already at daycare, I will have one for breakfast, and by then maybe I'll decide it truly is the best stout ever.
