This is what a stout should be. Deep black color with a thick, rich long lasting tan head. Both the smell and taste are a nice combination of coffee and chocolate with the hop bitterness working with the sweetness to provide great balance. Rich mouthfeel - almost creamy. This is my benchmark for what an American Stout should be.

S- Rich dark color. Nice inch head in my beer snifter with beautiful lacing.

A- Hard roasted malts, breath of chocolate, coffee, finishing with alcohol and floral aroma.

T- Overwhelming acrid burnt malts along with bitter hop finish leaves me a little disappointed with the overwhelmingly high rating.

M- The only thing I have is "dry," a little too dry for a stout.

O- Would definitely go with something else... just not what I want in a stout. However, we all know that beer is an individual thing.
