4.53/5  rDev +8.9%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours dark brown to black - nearly opaque in my nonic - but red edges show when held to the light. A hard pour yields three fat fingers of fluffy coffee latte colored head whose bubbles somehow glitter under the light. Fat foamy lace sticks to the sides of the glass.

The scent is noticeable from a foot away when poured. Roast coffee, bitter chocolate and cascade hops.

Taste is, well, glorious. Roasty, ground coffee beans, earth, hints of bitter dark chocolate. Dark roast coffee lingers at the back of the throat after each long sip. A sturdy but subtle hop bitterness in the background. Soft dark chocolate and ground fresh coffee beans slowly wend their way off the palate.

Mouth is luscious, creamy, coating, medium-full and softly carbonated with an enduring bitterness.

Drinkability is excellent.

This is one of the best stouts I've ever had. Damn.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - Authentic dark stout appearance. Healthy head that dissipates quickly.

S - Strong oat hues mixed with roasted barley.

T - Smooth, woodsy fireplace beer. Authentic stout taste and consistency. Comparable to cask served.

M - Smooth, smooth, smooth

O - This is an authentic stout that I would recommend to anyone looking to adventure into the world of stouts. Excellent consistency, color, taste, and appearance.
