look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into my RR tuplip

Appearance: Pours dark brown/almost black. Thick and inky. Beautiful tan head.

Smell: Rich chocolate and coffee. Slight leathery tobacco, not strong though. Sweet malts.

Taste: Coffee up front. Sweet chocolate mid with a hoppy back end. I love how the subtle hop taste, I think it ties it all together. Tobacco aftertaste in my mouth. Very complex.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, standard carbonation

Overall: This thing is so complex. I honestly like it served room temperature opposed to chilled. A staple for stouts, can't believe it took me so long to review it. If you want an benchmark for an American Stout, look no further.

look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Pours nice and dark into a pint glass with a thin brown head and some amber around the edges. Not a lot of bubbles, as expected.

Notes of coffee, oatmeal, and some caramel/toffee. Very well blended with none overpowering.

Taste is heavenly. Oats give way to the coffee with some pleasant sweetness in the front and middle and warmth and a hint of bitterness on the end. Lots of dark chocolate. Mouthfeel is nice and chewy.

A truly outstanding beer.
