4.38/5 rDev -3.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance - black as night with a 2 finger tan head that lingers for a short time, but leaves good lacing throughout the glass.
Smell - Sweet, lots of toasted malt with a bitter coffee smell coming though. Not too much alcohol in the nose.
Taste - Sweet start with a quick transition to some of the bitterness. The malts and hops work really well together, the sweetness of the grain fade nicely into a bitter roasted coffee flavor. You get a little more of the alcohol here than in the nose.
Mouthfeel - Wonderful for me. A little more carbonation than most stouts I've had recently, but the silky smooth texture is still there and it surrounds the tongue.
Overall - This beer is fantastic. It is something that i could literally drink for breakfast, and would work especially work well with some buttered toast and eggs. The taste is rather mild and lingering, but incredibly complex. One of the best stouts I've ever had.
