3.83/5  rDev -6.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured a very deep, dark brown into my snifter with a very light brown head that had good retention for awhile and lots of tight bubbles. Lacing started immediately as the head started to lessen.

I caught whiffs of this one as I was pouring it out of the bottle a foot away from my nose, that's a good sign. Caramel and sweet aromas are noticeable. Some bitterness for sure and a little vanilla sweetness too.

The sweetness I noticed in the smell is only present at the beginning very briefly. Excellent roasted espresso and mocha flavors on this one throughout. Well balanced, subdued bitterness in the end.

The smoothness is excellent, as it should be. The mouthfeel is thick and rich and so easy to go down.

Drinkability on this one is great. Especially at only 5% ABV. I certainly wouldn't suggest going to something light after this, but having a few of these would be no problem.

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.
