look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Almost want to dock a .5 here since all I got was head with this pour. I might as well blame myself, even though I know I poured it proper. Pours an oil slick black, with the darkest head Ive ever seen. Real thick also.
Smells powerful deep bakers chocolate with lots of espresso. Some black patent, and roasted malt. Some ABV, but par for the style. Im curious about the hops, none present.
Stout, fairly bitter. Im getting some cocoa, but no chocolate per se. Maybe some ground coffee, but not the flavor I was expecting. I hate to go below good, here but I think its a bit bitter for my taste. I get that its an American Double, but for the Beer Geek Breakfest, I want more roasted coffee, not bitter black coffee.
Well balanced, but with the ABV fairly low for the style its expected. Might have just a bit too much roasted malt, though it could be the coffee, not sure. As mentioned, a bit bitter.
Good drinking beer, not really one I have desire to come back to though.
