Look: Pours very dark. Basically black. Very little head, but very dark tan-brown in color. Very little lacing. But it's a good looking stout.
Smell: Strong chocolate smell up front, with a little bit of cherry and a touch of brown sugar. Like a chocolate covered cherry. Very good smell.
Taste: Almost the same as the smell, chocolate and cherry and brown sugar. A hint of coffee bitterness at the end.
Mouthfeel: Fulled bodied. Medium levels of carbonation.
Overall: This is fantastic. One of the better stouts I've had. I've had so many good stouts, it's hard to say this IS the best, but it's not far off.

22 oz bottle was poured into a tulip. Review #900
Appearance: A one finger mocha head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pitch black color with no vision of anything.
Smell: Super delicious sweet milk chocolate, toffee, caramel, molasses, smoke, warm booze, and some sweet and bready oats.
Taste: Balance of aromas from above. Definitely dark fruit taste too with some mild bitterness in the end. Very tasty.
Mouthfeel: Silky creamy smooth, delicious, warm alcohol, medium to full bodied, and low to medium carbonation.
Overall: One of the best RIS that I have ever had. Comes off a little thin, but still packed with a lot of flavor and balance. Great choice for my 900th review.
