look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a bottle into a stout glass.
A - Dark brown/light black, nice 2 fingers of brown head, recedes over a couple of minutes to a ring with some swirls on the surface. Some lacing. Looks good.
S - A little lacking. Smells of weak coffee, some roasted malts, and a hint of chocolate. Not the best smelling stout by any means.
T - Very good, bordering on great. Delivers tons of chocolcate and roasted malts, with a very nice coffee note to balance everything out. Hops are there in exactly as they should be - no direct bitterness or flavor, but they are there to keep things balanced so as not to be sweet or cloying. There are many beers out there with coffee, but this is one of the few in which it is pronounced without taking over. Everything is very well balanced in this beer. A go-to if there ever was one.
M - A bit heavy for a beer that isn't huge, but it's got great carb for a stout, really goes well with the flavor profile.
O - This is one of my very favorites, even though it doesn't quite deliver on the smell. I'll return to this one again, and again, and again.

A- Dark black with a decent head.
S- A nice blend of chocolate and coffee beans. The smell dissipated rather quickly in my snifter, but agitating it brought it all right back.
T- Lives up to it's smell wonderfully, a rich coffee and chocolate flavor. Can't say I really pick up on the oatmeal as well as the former flavors, but it tastes amazing nonetheless.
M- Very smooth, non intrusive aftertaste. Minimal amount of bitterness that stays with you for a bit after you've finished.
O- Absolutely beautiful blend of chocolate and coffee, both in terms of smell and taste. One of the best beers I've had and my favorite stout to date.
