4.35/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle poured into a goblet.

Bottled on April 16, 2010.

A - Pours an incredibly viscous black, slowly glugging out of the bottle, it doesn't appear to be building any head, and after making it a bit more hard, still little. As the carbonation rushes back up, however, it resurges into rocky, 2.5-fingered mocha colored head with good retention. Absolutely pitch black, only the tiniest sliver of chocolate brown color on the bottom edge. Good lacing as well.

S - Smell is almost entirely bittersweet chocolate and slightly roasted malts. A little bit of espresso, but not much at all. Smells hoppy as well. Would compare this Victory's Storm King, and the only beer I've had since then to have this type of profile.

T - Taste follows the nose faithfully. Again, almost all bittersweet chocolate, mild coffee, and hop goodness. Rich and creamy, everything goes down very smoothly and everything flows together a bit nicer. This one has a little bit of age on it, so the hops have faded a bit, which I can only imagine helps everything meld together.

M - Mouthfeel is heavy, not surprising given the thickness of the pour. Finish is long and smooth, and is bitter with chocolate and hops.

D - Drinkability is high. The alcohol is masked incredibly well, and there isn't one taste that dominates or hurts the flavor. I would like to try this fresh to see how the hops add to it, but I would gladly enjoy one this age or older as well.

4.09/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Aroma: Toasted nuts, roasted coffee and chocolate, with a little sweet liqueur thrown in for good measure

Appearance: Pours like slick black oil with a minimal, decadent, half-inch tan head

Taste: Bitter and slightly salty, with a nice, long, lightly sour aftertaste

Palate: Light bodied with a thin oily texture, flat with an astringent, bitter finish

Overall: A good stout, but perhaps a little too bitter to be named excellent.
