look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pint on tap at brewpub.
Clear but very dark brown, with a fine tan head that did not last as long as I hoped.
Plenty of chocolate in the nose plus coffee.still not as highly aromatic as one might hope.

The flavor is richer and better, albeit a shade towards the light side, and toward sweet, for this style.

M: medium-full body with low carbonation. Slightly more astringent than ideal.

O: very pleasant stout although on the light and sweet side.

Arrives aeffectively black with a full inch of creaminess sitting atop the liquid.
Smell is weak but notes of toast, cardboard and malt can be gleaned. Balance is alright.
Taste is a step up with notes of toasted malt, dark fruit, vanilla and chocolate. Better balance and complexity here.
Medium-full body, very light effervescence. Borderline smooth with a light coarlying of the tongue and palate that goes on to a stickiness. Overall, a decent beer but not a great one.
