look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
This brew poured to a completely black color, no light sneaking through this one. Thick deep tan colored head hat fills the English pint glass. The froth has great legs, a part of it sticks around for the entire experience. The amount of lacing is extensive, huge amounts of clumps at the top and then sheets as this beer disappears. The aromas are complex, dark mallts give a deep roasted and slight burnt scent that is reminiscent of coffee and chocolate, some sweet aroma. Some fruit aromas come through and maybe a little vanilla. Excellent roasted flavor that highlight the chocolate and roasted coffee that was noted in the aroma. Oat flavor seems to be there and I think adds to some of the smoothness, as this brew has a very creamy feel. Slight fruit presence as well as maybe a slight vanilla taste. As I said earlier has a very creamy feel across the tongue and in the back of the mouth. Carbonation is not extensive which is perfect for this brew, and has a pretty dry finish. This brew is excellent, one of the nicest "stouts" I have had in a long time. I will have to pick up more of this brew, though at the price it might be somewhat of a treat.

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.
