4.2/5 rDev -3.4%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
A- pours a jet black with one of the darkest brown heads I have seen...sticky and creamy, about two inches; decent lacing
S- just like the bottle says; picked up a lot of roasted coffee, alcohol and chocolate
T- dark chocolate syrup, roasted bitterness with a nice dose of hops at the end; hints of faint dark fruits covered in chocolate
M- it's a stone brew, so always nice; never been disappointed with a stone mouthfeel; medium to full that's really creamy, not too carbonated; aftertaste is rather nice with a mild roasted flavor and hop lingering
D- not sure if its a good thing or not but I couldn't really taste the alcohol it was really well hidden, which is a sign of a well-made beer; it creeps up on you by the end of the 22oz bottle; it's a bit hoppy for my tastes, but a really affordable and well-made addition to the Stone line up
