look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A- Pours an incredibly deep, dark brown. Just on the verge of black really. Ruby/Chesnut highlights glide around the edge of the glass when held to the light. A thick and chewy two finger head billows like a coffee cloud and sinks slowly into the abyss leaving islands of sticky lacing all around the glass.

S- Right up front is tons of milk and bittersweet chocolate followed by some sweet cream and black coffee. It's giving up some dark cherry, fig, raisin highlights as it warms up a bit. Little bits of toffee and caramel come in behind the huge chocolate and dark fruit mix. Amazing depth as it warms.

T- Bittersweet cocoa, really good black coffee... and bourbon? I swear I taste some vanilla heat in this. Crazy! I've had this before years ago and I don't remember it being this good. Milk chocolate, heavy whipping cream, perfectly roasted espresso, roasted nuts, butterscotch, sun dried cherries and raisins. This really has some depth to it! Each sip is another experiance.

M- Just a notch below medium thick. Butterscotch Lifesavers and Chocolate Resin candy. Nice bitterness that matches perfectly with the candybar sweetness. I still swear I'm picking up some vanilla/bourbon notes.

O- $4.99 for an RIS this good! Are you kidding me? Shhh... don't tell Lagunitas that this is better than half of the $15-20 Stouts on the market. Amazing depth, a fantastic inter-play between bitter/sweet/sour fruit. I need to put out an ISO: for a 2011 bottle so my vertical from 2008 will stay intact. Why buy a Starbucks coffee for $5 when you can have this beauty?
