4.58/5  rDev +10.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

The nose is light--far lighter, in fact, than I was expecting for a brew that won "best stout" in the 2007 Celebration of Suds. But don't mistake light for simple. In fact, the nose is quite complex, with chocolate malt and milk chocolate notes, as well as coffee & cream swirls, and caramels.

On the tongue, the brew is immediately dark, thick, and meaty, with wave upon wave of chocolate malt crashing against the tongue. Mixed in with this are many of the typical flavors one would expect from a good-quality stout--coffee, tobacco, ash, dark (i.e. 90%) chocolate--but in far greater and more finely tuned quantities. These flavors dominate the mouthful, lasting well into the aftertaste. Hops are present, but mostly provide a background fuzz. There are hints of roasted barley as well, which provide a nice grainy base, and the oats lend the mouthfeel a silkiness (in addition to its cream-like viscosity).

Overall, this is an excellent stout, and it's easy to see why it's a gold-medal winner: it's been well-crafted, lavished with pounds and pounds of ingredients, and brewed to perfection by someone who truly loves stouts.
