look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A: This beer pours thick, dark, viscous. A vigorous pour yields a mocha colored head the width of your thumb. This dissipates fairly quickly and I did not observe it to leave lacing on the glass. Completely opaque, the beer is maybe more dark brown than black. An appetizing appearance.

S: Dark baking chocolate, or cocoa, which to me is the dominant note. Some background alcohol booziness wafts in, along with some brush strokes of espresso.

T: Complex, balanced between sweet and bitter, decadent maltiness with hops that would be aggressive in an ale, but leave you questioning whether the lingering bitterness is charry malt or the hops in this beer. A beer to be pondered.

M: It drinks like it pours; full and thick and viscous. There is a nice carbonated tingle on the front end, balanced with mousse-like silkiness. Maybe the best part of the beer.

O: This is an impressive stout. A superb example of artful craftsmanship.

pours thick & black. two finger light brown frothy head. robust nose - malt, espresso, dairy, and a bit of booze. taste isnt as agressive as the nose. very smooth. sweet burnt malt, espresso. the bitterness is right in balance w. the sweet. well done RIS.
