4.25/5 rDev +1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Poured from 750ml to snifter.
Appearance - Poured black and syrupy thick. Bringing it to the light shows it to be espresso colored - cloudy and extremely dark brown. Finger of coffee colored head that dissipated quickly, but had glistening lacing that clung beautifully. Top notch - only thing missing was a pancake head.
Smell - Roasted mocha latte - blend of bitter and sweet. Slight molasses.
Taste & Mouthfeel - Started drinking this way too cold. Hops were overpowering the rest of the flavor... Excellent sweet roasted chocolate malts served with bitter coffee and a dollop of caramel to further counter the bitterness of the hops that overtook me from the start. A hint of vanilla. Once warmed, the real flavors came through and the hops took a back seat. Hops were mildly citrusy and finished dry, but left a bitter aftertaste. Smooth to start, bitter to finish. Prevalent alcohol - warms mouth and throat - not face numbing. Heavy. Lightly carbonated. Sticky on my lips. Sticky drops drying around the edges of the glass. Heavy like a truck.
Overall - Excellent stout - rich and complex. Bitter hop aftertaste that hung around is the only aspect I wasn't too fond of, but that is a characteristic that some enjoy.

dark black pour with a creamy brown head. smell of chocolate and roasty malts and quite in your face and big. real rich. taste of burnt bittersweet chocolate and a lot of roasty notes. very true to style and drinkable. body is almost full and carbonation is very on point. its definitely a great beer. recommended.
