look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
this beer has huge aromas of coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts, and it smells a little sweet as well. no hop aroma.
beer is black. solid black, even when held to the light. brown head, and fair lacing.
taste is sweet. immediate flavors of roasted malts, bitter chocolate and coffee, just like the aroma. there is some tingly bitterness on the sides of the tongue, that may be the roasted malts or the hops, the bottle says this beer is at 60 ibus, but i dont taste much hop bitterness here. the overall taste is sweet but it is nicely balanced. no hop flavor. flavor lingers long after the finish. flavor of alcohol, of course, becomes apparent as the beer warms.
soft carbonation. soft finish. medium-big mouthfeel.
overall this beer is solid. this is the benchmark stout as far as im concerned. this is going to be the stout that i want my homebrewed stouts to taste like.
