look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Smell is light all around but what comes through is plum, sweet cigar, chocolate, coffee, toasted grain with a slight astringent finish. Flavor is dark chocolate, cherry, tobacco, strong roasted coffee, slightly sweet, no bitterness, mild chili on the back end - heat dissipates instantly. Finish is dry, light effervescence, on the lighter side of medium bodied - wish the chili lingered a bit longer, but still a good beer.

A: dark black with some muddy brown at the bottom

A: roasted malts, chipotle pepper, dark chocolate, toasted toffee

T: sweet malts and milk chocolate right away. Ten hit with the spice. It's not that spicy but you can feel it in the mouth. Fades to toffee and powdered dark chocolate

M: medium with some syrup-like qualities

O: this is nice because the spice is present, but not overwhelming to the point where the stout flavors are dominated. Would have like a little more roasted qualities, but overall it's better than average.
