look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Starts off with a finger-thick dark cream-colored head. It's very persistent and foamy. Aggressive carbonation surges upward through the black liquid. The creamy head is a beautiful contrast to the dark beer beneath it.

Smells of sweet malt, oatmeal and is very grain heavy with a cream-like aroma. The dark roasted malt is a heavy presence as well.

Sweet malts initially hit the palate, but they're accompanied by a dry bitterness. There's a thick oatmeal flavor, hints of vanilla tossed in and the finish is a big dose of baker's chocolate. I eventually get a taste of dark coffee as well.

I feel the body is on the lighter side of medium and could be thicker. Yet, the creamy quality redeems this aspect a bit.

This beer is good and pretty refreshing. I can drink this out of the can in the park or slowly sip it. Very well done.

Serving type: can

4.01/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

A: Thin head when pored into a tulip glass. Same small layer of head remains after a short time. The stout is a nice coffee black.

S: Malts and coffee. Slight caramel scents. The coffee is most pronounced.

T: Deep coffee flavor. Some hint of bitter chocolate but the coffee dominates throughout.

M: Slightly more carbonation than I expected. This cut down a little on what would have been a smoother stout.

O: The carbonation feel is the biggest ding against a pretty solid stout. If you like coffee I think this will be a hit. It is drinkable and repeatable.
