4.03/5 rDev -2.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from a 16.9oz bottle into a standard pint glass
A - pours a deep brown that turns opaque black in the glass. A deep mocha brown head 2.5 fingers tall builds. Fluffy. Creamy. Medium amount of lacing. Foam sticks around in a small puddle for the entire drink.
S - first thing I pick up is molasses and cappuccino. Lots of chocolate. Licorace. Bakers chocolate chips. Slightly roasty.
T - lots going on. Large amounts of smoky tobacco. The tobacco notes remind me slighly of Rivertown's War. The coffee takes a slight backseat to the roast and tobacco flavors. Dark chocolate. Very slight amount of sweetness.
M - medium-full bodied. A drying effect is present. I think from reviewing two beers in two nights with oatmeal, I'm not getting the creamy mouthfeel I was expecting. Doesn't mean it's bad, just not as expected.
D - a nice sipper for me. I'm trying to see if it opens up as it warms.
Overall, a very nice stout with lots if different tastes ranging from tobacco smoke to chocolate to malt to coffee. I thought the coffee was a little more muted than what I would have liked to see. The only downfall in my eyes is that there is nothing that stood out as being "oh my" on this one. Very solid all around but lacking that "geez x is damn good" aspect.
