4.05/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
12 oz bottle from the state store, poured into a standard pint.
Appearance: Dark brown with red edges against a light. The tan head settled into a thin layer of foam that left a small bit of lacing around my glass.
Smell: Some cocoa sweet notes and slight roasted malt bitterness. A nice intriguing but not overwhelming smell
Taste: A very nice mix of bittersweet chocolate and a bit of earthy hops. I don't get any flavors that I identify as coffee, but the roasted malts obviously take center stage.
Mouthfeel: This beer is round and wide. The flavor coats the mouth without the body being syrupy (served warmer than usual). The carbonation gives the weight of the roasted malts a bit of a lift.
Overall: I enjoyed this beer. One of the better stouts available to me. Will buy again.
Serving type: bottle
