A: pours dark black, small tan head.

S: roasted malt smell, chocolate, coffee, chocolate, coffee

T: its malty goodness in a glass. Chocolate hits you right away, the coffee is there, but its sweet.. not bitter, very sweet but its not a bad thing. The alcohol is very very well hidden.

M: Perfect in my opinion. its very smooth, its silky but not too thick. For such a flavorful brew, its Very drinkable.

O: amazing stout its great in my opinion, it is bold, yet sweet, strong yet subtle. It has flavor! Its crafted with quality ingredients. I understand sweetness in a beer isnt everyones cup of tea, but this is a grade A quality beer. A 12oz bottle ran me $2.75 and i had it on tap at barleys taproom in greenville for $5. Its affordable. For the style it gets a 10 out of 10. Its an amazing beer and i say everyone should try it. Cheers

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Impressive while to be expected for the style.

S: Overwhelming roasted malt and chocolate.

T: Very malty and chocolatey at first. After about a half of a bottle, the coffee becomes more and more apparent.

M: Perfect for a double stout, very silky without being too overwhelmingly syrupy.

O: Extremely good stout and well worth the $3 for the 12oz bottle. However, a slight bit underwhelming given the reviews here. Definitely worth a try however it has nothing on its competitor, Dieu du Ciel's Péché Mortel.
