4/5  rDev -5.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours black with a very short brown head, leaves some lacing

Smell: Roasted barley, chocolate, coffee, earthy hops

Taste: Again, nice roasted barley up front, some coffee and chocolate, earthy hops, some dark fruits as well, lower bitterness than standard for the style

Mouthfeel: Full body, low carbonation, appropriate for the style

Overall: Excellent, but there are so many good brews in the style, its hard to justify the cost. A nice touch is the lower bitterness, makes it easier to drink, more desirable.

Serving type: bottle

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Poured into a snifter to pitch black with a barely there tan head that is quick to fade to a small collar around the glass
S: smells big and roasty with notes of coffee and chocolate
T: tastes of coffee, bitter dark chocolate, roast malt, and some cocoa powder. swallow is more chocolate and coffee with more roasted malt flavor
M: Full in the mouth with a nice smooth feel on the palate. carbonation is there but it isn't assertive. nice finish that isn't drying
O: Overall, this is a fantastic beer that drinks very well and has good flavors. I want to try this after a barrel treatment.
