look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

A: Pours a very dark brown, nearly black. Has a small amount of light brown head, the color of a coffee with cream. Head looks nice but doesn't last long.

S: Strong chocolate smell with some hints of coffee. Smells quite nice, hopefully foreshadowing something good in the taste...

T: ... But sadly, not so much. The taste isn't bad by any means, but not memorable either. Has more of a coffee stout than outmeal stout taste, with quite a bit of bitterness. The taste is not particularly strong either way. There is also a slightly metalic undertone. The taste is decent for a stout, but didn't get that rich chocolatey, coffee flavor that is in the smell, and not much on the oatmeal side of things.

M: Thought the mouthfeel was okay. Reasonably creamly, medium bodied.

O: Overall, this is decent, but nothing memorable. I'd certainly drink another one if it was nearby, but this isn't a stout that I would purchase regularly. It's a tough market with so many flavorful dark beers out there, and this one doesn't stand out from the crowd.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - beautiful dark chocolate opaque body with the faintest of perceptible cloudiness. And a pretty dark dark head that looks like equal parts mud shaving cream with a squirt of blood. Some light lacing.

S - strong chewing tobacco and sweet figs. Warning, after a few sips the powerful bitterness hides the aromas. Wet Mesquite and cherries.

T - aftertaste is quite bitter and hangs around until the moment just before it's no longer wanted. Strong herbal flavors.

M - Buttery but again a bit too bitter

D - overall good but only at the right price not worth driving too far.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 12 oz bottle.
Pours a dark brown with small head in a Chimay chalice.
Aroma of dark chocolate, dark malts, caramel.
Moderate carbonation and mouthfeel for the style.
Flavors of dark roasted malts, dark coffee, espresso beans, bitter grassy hops, minerals. Bigger dark roasted than sweet malt flavor and not that big in body overall, but tasty for its style.
