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

Appearance: moderate carbonation, 1 inch head, opaque, black in color

Smell: cocoa, chocolate, Bosco chocolate syrup

Taste: chocolate, Bosco chocolate syrup, coffee, light vanilla

Mouthfeel: Sweet with a roasty body, medium body, moderate carbonation

Overall: An average to above average export stout. There is not anything bad about this stout, but not much jumps out to me either. That said it was a good sipper that I had a coupe of during a snowy football watching day.

It snowed this morning in Boston and thus something winter-y was needed for tonight.

Appearance- Good thick head with a deep dark body. Not too thick.

Smell- Deep rich stout smell with a subtle hint of cloves.

Taste- Chocolate and coffee with a aftertaste of cloves and spice!

Mouthfeel- I love how this feels when I drink it. The cloves and spice aftertaste brings out the taste that every winter beer should have. It's like biting into a gingerbread cookie.

Overall- I like this beer. It's a really nice stout feel followed by a rich spice that needs to be pared with a night in front of a fire with a warm blanket.

Cheers!
