look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours an opaque onyx, with a frothy, dense mocha head that lingers.

Chocolate, roast malt, and a hint of tar form the initial aroma. Oats and nutty, toasted malt surface. Subtle dark fruit nuances of dark cherries and raisins add complexity.

Flavor is rich and roasty, with huge chocolate character dominating. Dark berry notes underlie a roast malt body that's given the impression of sweetness from the chocolate, but finishes roasty and a touch dry. Nuttiness emerges in the aftertaste. There's a touch of an acrid character that is slightly offputting.

Body is moderate to slightly full, but is velvety smooth and creamy, with slightly low carbonation, and a touch of alcohol warmth.

Very rich brew with nice balance of roast and nutty malt characters. Chocolate and oats dominate, which is somewhat unusual, considering the proliferation of coffee dominant stouts.
