Unremarkable. Thick and heavy, but lacks any intensity of flavor.

1100th review. Beer was poured into a large snifter.

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: Toasted, roasted coffee, earthy, chocolate, sweet and bready oats, smoke, caramel, booxy alcohol, and leather.

Taste: Milk chocolate, coffee, caramel, raisins, dark fruits, tobacco, ash, roasted, bready oats, and nice warm alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Silky smooth, full bodied, medium carbonation, a dipper, got better as it warmed, and dome nice warm boozy alcohol.

Overall: Oh man. Great choice for another rating landmark. Review #1100 will be memorable and enjoyed. Might have to get another bottle to age in the pantry.

look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a viscous black sludge. The head resembles the thick dark brown foam that sits a top a shot of espresso. Opaque with no visible carbonation. Minor amount of lace.

S: Intense notes of roasted malt including chocolate and coffee. Earthy and nutty with notes of dark dried fruit including figs. A mild amount of hop bitterness.

T: Roasted malt with notes of espresso, dark chocolate, and nuts. Sweeter notes of raisins. The finish is long, dry and resembles the bitterness of an espresso soaked lemon rind. What a transition.

M: Thick and chewy. Velvety smooth.

O: This stout is big, but super drinkable. The booze is extremely well hidden on nose and palate.

A - Pours engine oil black, no head, and no lacing- pretty much looks like the dead sea with
an oil slick.

S - Dark chocolate roast aroma, dark fruit, light char, dark molasses, light alcohol.

T - Follows the nose, plum, sweet dark chocolate roast, dark molasses, light charcoal, some
and coffee, oak, and alcohol effervescence.

M - Full medium body, rich, robust, sticky, viscous.

O - A very solid stout.
