look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
The color is dark coffee black and about 99% opaque. Very little head from a generous pour. Looks heavy. The smell is cocoa with robust malts, a bit of molasses and an edge of something sweet like cream. The hops show up as a slight but balancing bitterness.

A big roasted malt flavor with notes of bitter chocolate, mellow cocoa, smoke, there's also a charred taste too. The hops show up much bigger in the taste with a significant bitter herbal hop edge showing up in the middle of the flavor and riding through the after taste. The mouth feel is thick and very heavy. This is good but has too much of a hop flavor to shine as a really tasty stout to me...Not quite complex enough in the malt.A very well made beer but not my favourite stout by any means.
