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

Bottled Dec 13, 2010. Drank tonight, and a fine choice indeed.

Appearance. Pours a deep, dark and thick chestnut brown with half a finger of tan head.

Smell. Licorice and molasses, cocao powder, some sour coffee and a little wood.

Taste. Molasses and fantastic roasty, smokey malts. Coffee and dark chocolate explode in the middle with plenty of lingering roasty coffee and oak. Not sweet, but just sweet enough. Chocolate coats the mouth forever.

Mouthfeel. Full body with smooth, medium-low carbonation.Just a little warmth.

Overall. Wow, I was completely blown away by this one. This is how I always want a big stout to taste, but it rarely does. I really love this one. Hope I cross it's path again soon!!

Bottled April of 2010, so about a year and a half old. This is a pretty beer on the pour, mahogany in color with a nice dark tan head.
There are potent smells of coffee, dark chocolate, oak vanilla and molasses or toffee.

The taste certainly follows the nose, with coffee and chocolate dominating. Medium bodied, not overly creamy nor carbonated, in my opinion. The oak is there throughout, and lingers in the finish. There is a nice malt/hop balance for the style.

This is a nice offering from GDBC, a good all around stout. Great Divide is definitely a brewery I'm paying more attention to.
