4.22/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Presentation: Corked and caged brown 750 with typical, beautifully-done L.A. label

Appearance: Pitch black and opaque; there's a dark mocha head of large bubbles...took a fairly hard pour to get much of a head at all but once there it had decent retention

Smell: Sweet dark and roasty malts with a decent amount of dusty dark fruit and burnt caramel.

Taste: Big roasted and lots of burnt malts, dark fruit, a touch of barnyard (as in red Bordeaux, not Belgian funk)...alcohol is hidden quite well for the abv

Mouthfeel: Full bodied and viscous

Drinkability: Pretty high for the abv

Conclusion: This is a deceivingly drinkable, burnt, roasty stout...I like the dark fruit here as well and just the hint of barnyard...this is quite nicely done and one I'll definitely try to return to.

Serving type: bottle
