look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Served up at approx. 55 degrees f in a pint glass, poured from bottle.
Appearance is beautiful. Pours with a big huge chocolate milk foam head with great lacing and long legs. Takes forever to fade and sits dark and lovely in the glass.
Smells of alcohol, roasted malts and slight grassiness from what must be late hop additions.
Taste is bitter up front with lots of medicinals, alcohol, roasted malt espresso flavors. Bitterness lingers a bit too long for my tastes.
It's got a warming sting, rich and thick beer. Overall, good but not great.

3.78/5 rDev -7.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Bottled on 2/22/13. Says its designed to improve with age.
Appearance: Black body with a thin cap of light brown suds. Not quite as dark as some other stouts but definitely looks the part.
Aroma: Rich dark malt and stone fruit. Dried figs. I've got a bit of a head cold so this thing is very quite aromatic for being about a year and a half since it was bottled.
Taste: Starts with nearly sweet dark malt flavor that transitions to a sweet cream flavor. The hops don't add much to the flavor, likely having faded from sitting on the shelf for so long. However, the bitter tones from the dark malt help balance the creamy sweetness. Finish is bitter coffee grinds. Really not tasting much of the 12.5% ABV apart from a burn on the palate in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Very smooth with moderate carbonation. Full in body.
Final Thoughts: This one basically met my expectations. Would have liked to taste a little vanilla or perhaps an oaken-aged version just to spruce it up a bit. The flavor is consistent with many other well known stouts of the style. Definitely a well done beer but nothing special. Would I drink it again? Maybe if it was on nitro-tap.
