It's an opaque black, topped with a creamy, milk-chocolate head--solid retention and decent lacing.
The smell consists of toasted malt, coco, and chocolate. It tastes like a big glass of chocolate milk, except better. Oats, roasted malt, coco, cream, and just a touch of bitterness from the hops, results in a tasty treat of a brew.
The mouth is mellow and creamy on the front, and the dryness of the malt and coco, followed by the assertion of hops, results in a delightfully bittersweet finish. A truly enjoyable stout.

4.2/5 rDev +1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Very dark brown, opaque. At the very edge of the glass a slight brown/ruby color can be seen. Soft, creamy looking head that dissipates nearly entirely, but clings to the edge of the glass. Left little to no lacing on my glass.
Thick, and heavy with the smell of chocolate. Not a coco smell, but the smell of chocolate syrup. No hop aroma at all.
Light, roasted barley with a slight crispness. Flavor is clean and free of esters. The chocolate flavor is not as overwhelming as the aroma would suggest. Carbonation is on the smoother side, pleasant, and not too abrasive. Has a smooth, creamy finish, and the roasted chocolaty flavors finish well with a pleasant slightly bitter aftertaste. Could have slightly more body in the flavor and mouthfeel, and perhaps just a hint of acidity or sourness to balance the bittersweet chocolate flavor.
Overall Style 4.375/5
