look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 3.5
This was from the first bottling of this beer I believe. Bottle 166/192.
Appearance: Pours pitch black in the glass, very viscous. About 1/2" of dark tan head forms which has pretty nice retention and limited lacing.
Smell: Very roasty smell, with some coffee and dark chocolate present. Very pungent stout smells here, nothing meek at all about it. Not necessarily the most integrated, well put together smell though.
Taste: Roast, coffee and dark chocolate mix together pretty nicely. Bitter coffee and slight nuttiness intermingle on the finish. This isn't short on flavor, but not the best put together stout.
Mouthfeel/Overall: Mouthfeel is thick, viscous and smooth. Nice. Overall I'm not sure what I was expecting from this beer, but it certainly wasn't this. It definitely has some nice flavors and is not short on boldness. Could meld together better but worth a try for sure if you get the chance.

32 ounce growler filled earlier today at Blacklick Wine and Spirits. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with an inch tan head that stayed around a while. There's also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like roasted malt, bittersweet and milk chocolate, nuts/walnuts, and some dark fruit. The taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some burnt/charred malt and a bit of coffee. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's slick and syrupy with moderate carbonation. I think this is a pretty good stout, next time I'll have to get a 64 ounce growler instead! Definitely worth trying if you come across it somewhere.
Serving type: growler
