look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

12oz bottle poured into Spiegelau tulip.

A: Pours a pure inky black with just a trace of tan head.

S: Roasted malt, coffee, molasses, and vanilla.

T: Roasted malt, burnt coffee, vanilla, and bitter dark chocolate up front; with some smokiness, spicy pepper, and light nuttiness. Also a moderate bitterness follows.

M: A good thick and oily body, just right to the style. Little carbonation comes through.

O: A very nice impression of the style, rich yet drinks easy as far as stouts go. Overall solid, and a good buy.
