3.66/5  rDev -10.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

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.

4.45/5  rDev +8.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Inky black with a huge mocha coloured head. Looks very smooth and creamy.

Smell: Aromas of dark roast coffee, and some oat notes. Very toasty, comforting smells.

Taste: Delicious. Lots of roasty notes, flavours of cold/iced coffee or espresso. A mild hoppy bitterness hides behind a round, roasted sweetness that comes up front. A touch of chocolate, and some nice earthiness. These flavours don't linger long on the tongue, and dissipate to a coffee bitterness that hangs around in the mouth for a few moments.

Mouthfeel: Super smooth, rich, creamy, but not too creamy. Perfect smoothness, very drinkable.

Overall: This really is a great beer, exceptional mouthfeel and lots of warm comforting flavours. Very highly recommended.
