4.22/5  rDev +7.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

This was a total "shot in the dark buy". Saw it on the shelves of my local BevMo and couldn't pass it up.

Pours from 500ml bottle into Duval tulip a exceptionally dark body with little to no hints on showing any light penetration. The initial pour produced a big two finger head, with long lasting retention, but modest lacing.

Aroma is all things chocolate and roasted. Overtones of chocolate, toffee and caramel. Pretty straight forward in the nose.

Taste was much bigger than I was anticipating. If I had known English Stouts where of this quality, I would have given this style a try. Stouts is on the fruity side, with raisins and dates punctuated by dark chocolate that borders on the edge of creamy. Light hints of vanilla and molasses in the finish and brown sugar being the primary aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is the same as I stated earlier, big and creamy. Just skirting on the edge of full.

Drinkabilitiy is good. Pretty easy drinker, with the alcohol being well hidden throughout the session. If the ABV where lower, it would be a great regular beer. A few of these can easily sneak up on an unsuspecting aficionado.
