look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

I've had it on tap and poured from a bottle, it's roughly the same either way. The tap may be a tad bit smoother, however.

A: Through the glass it appears a musty black. The head is tan/dark cream with good retention along as it dissipates to the side.

S: The aroma is of dark roasted malts, sweet sugars, and some espresso. The smell is wonderful and full, suggesting a complex beer.

T: For me, this is the ultimate expression of the style. It has enough sweetness to contrast the heavier flavor, or bite, of the roasted malt without overpowering it; I often find stouts leaning too far one way or another. The dry bite is certainly there, however, and quite wonderful. On top of this perfectly crafted base, spices and sugars mix with chocolate and coffee undertones to add a pleasant, modest complexity. Likewise, the body is an extremely smooth medium-full.

D: For stouts, this is it as far as I'm concerned. A supremely drinkable brew with enough complexity to keep things interesting, but enough of a solid base that it's a standard. Recommended for everyone and anyone, especially fans of straightforward yet intricate brews.

4.03/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Had this brew at John Barleycorn's in Tigard, Oregon.

Appearance - Deep Brown, almost black (SRM = 35)

Smell- There was a nutty coffe smell right off the bat, like a coffee lightly seasoned with a bit of hazelnut. Pretty much sums up this stout from here on out.

Taste - the nutty coffee smell gives way to just that, a light hazelnut and coffee tast. Delicious, fill bodied stout with a good 6.45 abv and smooth aftertaste that doesn't linger too heavy with the faintest bitterness. Leaves a bit of coffee breath though :P

Mouthfeel- lightly carbonated, flavor and bubbles stay on the middle of the tongue while the liquid slides down.

overall a great stout to begin the night of great beers to be had. Cheers.
