A - It poured a deep, dark chocolate brown with a nice tan head that dissipated quickly leaving little lacing behind.
S - Sweet deep chocolate and coffee notes as expected.
T - Similar to the nose, but slightly more complex. The chocolate and coffee notes certainly take the lead with a slight bitterness upon finish.
M - A little too thin for my preference, but enjoyable none-the-less.
O - A solid middle of the road stout that gave me what I expected to get. There wasn't anything overly complex or different about it, but I enjoyed it thoroughly.

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.
