4.49/5 rDev +7.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Pours jet black, thick but not motor oil thick. Two fingers of tan head looks great. No light penetrating through this beer.
Smell: vanilla and roasty notes hit the nose straight from the pour. Smells exactly like a good stout should.
Taste: chocolate, roasty, perfectly balanced with hops. yumm. cant ecplain the taste very well but it is fantastic with fantastic feel as well.
Overall, this is my new favorite stout. SImply fantastic. I can easily see why it has won so many awards. This review does the beer no justice but just a great everyday readily available go to stout.

From a six pack with a best before (not a canned on date) of 12-30-13. I poured this one into my beer goblet.
Appearance: Obviously a black beer. No light going through this one. It has a thin dark tan head. Laces a little bit.
Smell: Roast and char with some cocoa and vanilla. Maybe a hint on earthy hops. The cocoa is quite nice to balance the bitter. As it warms up, there is a husky grainyness that shows up.
Taste: Wonderful bittersweet cocoa, roast and ash. The creamy sweetness of the cocoa perfectly balances the bitter of the roast. This one really threads that needle so well.
Mouthfeel: Wonderful creamy mouthfeel with lower carbonation.
Overall: This is an amazing stout. I initially tried this one ten years ago, and did not like it for some reason. This was before I really knew anything about quality beer. I missed a lot of time enjoying this beer, and now I need to try to make that up again. This is an instant buy any time I see it. All of this in a regular release canned beer. It does not get much better.
