4.78/5 rDev +11.2%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5
Appearance: Dark as night, pours like motor oil. Left just about half an inch of foamy head which quickly dissipated. Some slight lacing along the glass as you drink.
Smell: I've had a number of stout beers in my time and this is perhaps one of the strongest beers to trigger my olfactory sense. Coffee is the most prevalent, with lesser notes of chocolate and what I would describe as almost nutty
Taste: Remember that coffee smell? Well after taking a sip you're going to know where that came from. The bottle description tells you that they use local coffee in the brew and I believe them. Overall a good stout, but honestly maybe a bit too much on the coffee
Mouthfeel: Smooth, clean, one of the cleanest stout beers I've ever had. I will say that the taste of coffee does seem to linger.
Overall: I love this beer, but for my money (and this beer is somewhat expensive) I would rather get an Old Rasputin. But certainly right up there in the same ballpark. If you like stouts, and haven't tried this one, then you need to.

Pours black with ruby edges and a half-finger of tan head that retains nicely. Ground black coffee dominates the nose, which also has dark chocolate, toasted oats, raisins, and a hint of vanilla. I taste a lot of dark chocolate up front with some vanilla and caramel, then coffee on the back end with roasted malts. The flavor profile is great and the beer really evolves in the mouth, but I get an astringency from the roasted malts that detracts from the taste. The body is on the full side of medium with medium carbonation.
