4.25/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

A: poured strongly to a two-finger caramel head, great lacing as the head dissipates

S: strong chocolate malt smell

T: chocolate taste and the oak taste stays in the back of the throat for a long time

M: very thick and creamy, little carbonation but seems just right

O: This is a very good beer with a strong flavor. The oakiness is definitely present in the taste but is a delight.

4.21/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

BTL date Sept 11, 2012
Rich chocolate torte pour with minimal heading.

Initial nose of malt, black coffee, sweet cream, dark cocoa and hint of clove.

Strong hop presence is dry with smoky oak notes. Sweet cream, vanilla and dark chocolate dominate. Chocolate frosting coming to mind. Coffee ground evident.

Mouthfeel is of dry oak, dark cocoa, and black coffee coating the tongue and lingering. I know I mentioned pleasant earlier but this is very forward and unabated.

Overall a nice stout that you would love for the bittering and drying effects. This is not really for the sweet tooth. Younger bottles tend to be raw and this is one to stow away for awhile. Young version I would give it an overall 3.5. An unrefined brew that can broken but still brash for the liking.
