look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
A: Deep black with brown highlights (i.e., no ruby highlight as you'd expect from a stout). Two-finger fluffy tan head that is surprisingly persistent. Nice lace.
S: Faint tootsie roll, but overall, the smell is rather lacking.
T: What was lacking in the smell is made up in the taste. Rich, creamy sweet chocolate up front transitions to a darker, more bittersweet chocolate towards midpalate. The finish is caramel and toffee, underscored by a nice ethanol burn.
M: Creamy and smooth, though not heavy. Good alcohol burn.
O: This is very nice, but I agree with the Bros that it's a Double/Imperial Brown Ale. Whatever we call it, though, it's tasty!
