look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Pours a deep, dark brown with a 2-finger light beige head. Lots of layered lacing.
The smell is rather faint--some charred coffee malts with piney hops. Taste is bitter, strong coffee with just a hint of toasty caramel along with some herbal and piney malt flavors. Mouthfeel is smooth & medium to full-bodied with just the right amount of carbonation.
This is one of the more interesting stouts I've had. It has all of the better qualities of a stout with the exception of the overly bitter aftertaste, and adds to that a hoppy undertone. It may have an effect on the hops, but aging this might improve it some.
