3.7/5  rDev -6.1%

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.
