look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a very dark, brown-to-black coloring with hazelnut highlights and a light tan, frothy, clingy head that starts a solid inch and quickly settles into a coating along the glass and surface. Aromas of dark chocolate, caramel, a touch of molasses, and cream. Very well balanced, and very rich. Flavors are roasted initially, with a coffee backbone and hints of smoke highlighting. Very bitter and dry, but balanced very well. The aftertaste is mostly coffee, with hints of bittersweet baker's chocolate. The grain bill helps keep things smooth and balanced. The finish is dry, with a slightly bitter linger. Very tasty, and very easy to drink.

poured into a tulip glass
(Side note: The production date on the bottle says it was made over 4 years ago)
a - Black body with dark orange tint. Two finger fluffy head. Head color is caramel. Head deflates slowly in the center and then later on the edges to form a half finger, dark latté colored head.
s - Creamy and smokey-cigar smell. Bourbon notes.
t - cream and oats start. Middle is nutty/coffee bean. Finish is milk, coffee, and toffee.
m - Full and smooth. Linger feels like milk or cream lines the mouth
o - Head wasn't as rich and full as I usually like in a stout. The flavor was simple, but tasty. Mouthfeel of the body was very nice, and the best part of this beer.
