look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Look: Beautiful looking beer that is thick and dark as motor oil.

Smell: Rich, hearty smell.

Taste: Too much going on with this brew. The multitude of flavors is overwhelming. The flavors ultimately drown each other out. The aftertaste is powerful and nutty.

Feel: The feel is alright, but does not pair well with the taste.

Too complex.

4.57/5  rDev +8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Very dark, almoust black, engine oil with just a little head that’s on the top like golden-brown whipped cream.

Nose: Coffee, toffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate, mocha, leather, kakao and dark syrup. Almoust a little sour nose.

Taste: Wow! This is f-ing awesome! Sweet coffee, oatmeal, brownies, boubon , vanilla, red berries and dried fruit.

Mouth: Large complex body with smooth, silky taste. Very soft carbonation.

This is almoust a perfect stout. I’m glad I bought 7 bottles (six to cellar)
