Pours a clear black. Exceptional head, lacing and retention. Light nose of chocolate, roast and caramel. Almost full bodied, yet creamy. Normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence on the finish. The flavor profile is very well balanced, but not as complex as the world class stouts. It's a nice blend of chocolate, roast and slightly sweet caramel that flows into a low level bitterness. The finish is smooth leaving you with a nice lingering tingle of cocoa and hops.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Center poured from the bottle into an imperial pint glass. Had to stop mid pour or the head would have spilled out over the counter. Dark brown with a massive light tan head.

Smells pretty good, however the hops are too prominent. Nice taste with the same feeling about the amount of hops present in a stout.

This beer is a little too watery for the style.

Not a bad beer, I wouldn't turn it down but I won't buy it again, too many others taste better.
