A: Black and opaque with a deep garnet showing on the edge when held to the light. The head is medium brown with mostly cream, compact bubble interspersed with some medium, soapy bubbles. it has an average retention period.
A: Rich roast, coffee and chocolate aromas at a medium-strong level along with a moderate caramel sweetness.
T: A great balance between medium-strong dark malt flavors, sweetness and medium hops bitterness. There are the dark malt flavors like in the nose with roast and coffee dominating, backed by some chocolate and caramel. There is a low citrus hops flavor. The balance is slightly towards the sweetness and the finish is medium. The aftertaste is of dark roast, a little bitterness and some slight charcoal.
M: A medium-full body and a slight creaminess with medium-strong carbonation.
O: A pretty tasty American Stout that I keep being inclined to call thin even though it isn't. It has good balance with a nice mix of dark malt flavors. Good enough that I'll seek out other beers from the brew when possible.

4.25/5 rDev +1.9%
Poured a deep black hue with a one finger foamy off white head. There was decent retention and lacing.
The smell featured soft coffee and cocoa tones with a bit of charcoal.
The taste consisted of round roasted malts with notes of smoke and charcoal. Perhaps a slight lactose sweetness detected as well.
The mouthfeel was full with a dry finish.
Overall a very well made stout.

4.08/5 rDev -2.2%
A: Pours a clear yet opaque jet black in color with some moderate amounts of gentle visible carbonation at the surface of the beer and some cola brown highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense foamy dark tan head that slowly reduces to
S: Moderate aromas of roasted dark and chocolate malts along with a light amount of earthy hops.
T: Upfront there are moderate flavors of roasted malts with some slightly lighter flavors of chocolate malts. Light notes of earthy malts that contributed to the overall moderate amount of bitterness which lingers for quite a while.
M: Just shy of full bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Light amounts of dryness in the finish.
O: This beer is very easy to drink, is well balanced, and has a moderate ABV making it pretty darn close to being sessionable for me. I like the roasted flavors of the malts and it is definitely an enjoyable brew.
