3.85/5 rDev -2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Served ina pint glass.
Appearance: Pitch black, little bubbles on the body with a thin head. Rises to about 1/3" then before your first sip it settles to almost nothing even lacing ends up looking like thin glass of motor oil.
Smell: Light malt smell, compliment with a oaked finish not too bad but was expecting something little different.
Taste: Little different than the norm, malty plus oaked barrel feel that is hard to pass up. The chocolate is very light but it is still there, lightly bitter.
Mouth: Medium carbonation but leans a little towards the light side of things
Overall: Well finished, and easy to drink. Maybe not the best of stouts you will ever have but definitely one that won't disappoint. Salud!

3.7/5 rDev -5.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance - Pours black in color with a near 2 finger, light tan head. Good retention results in a thin but consistent layer of suds across the surface. Fair lacing all around the glass with decent stick.
Smell - Not especially pungent, but what's there hits with notes of dark, semi-sweet chocolate, faint roastiness and a touch of earth and smokiness.
Taste - Follows the nose, but with more abundance Dark, semi-sweet chocolate is predominant, and backed by moderate notes of smoky character. Slight sourness. Roasty, coffee-like bitterness can be found faintly in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel - On the lighter side of medium bodied, a bit thin for the style, and with low to moderate carbonation. Not much going on with the mouthfeel.
Overall - Solid flavor that's right up my alley, but let down by a fairly lifeless and thin mouthfeel. In all, a good beer, but for the price I'd likely look elsewhere for my stout kick.
