3.9/5 rDev -4.2%
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.

3.75/5 rDev -7.9%
I had this in a nonic glass.
The appearance had a dark brown color ranging to some black tints closer to the middle. A one finger white to off white foamy head mushroom caps at the top of the beer and gently died into the beer leaving some light speckled lacing around the glass.
The smell had a grassy and a roasty nutty sweetness. Some super light coffee is there as well.
The taste was a combination of sweet, roasty, grassy, coffee and light citrus.
The mouthfeel had a light somewhat harshness from the bitter citrus but balances by the sweet flavoring from before.
Overall, every time I have more of this the more I like it. In my opinion, this is a solid option for an American Stout and we'll worth it's price.
