3.58/5  rDev -12.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass

A- pours a nice dark black, about a finger and a half tan head appears and sticks around for awhile, pretty nice lacing sticks to the glass

S- dark roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate, a little vanilla, pretty much a standard stout

T- this is a lot more complex than the smell led on, lots of roasted malt, bitter dark chocolate, slight taste of dark fruits present as well, a little bit of vanilla, the roasted malt tends to dominate despite the abundance of flavors

M- medium body, smooth and creamy, pretty nice balance of carbonation, solid feel

O- this is definitely better than a standard guiness, not an incredible beer but a decent stout overall
