look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: A nice bubble show and then the beer settles in to present a three finger mocha-colored head perched atop the engine oil colored liquid; strands of lacing linger

Smell: Roasty tones, black bread, chocolate, mint and pine

Taste: The roast, black bread and chocolate lay down the backbone but there is a surprising bitterness from the hops that arrives in the mid-palate; fudge flavors mingle with the piney bitter tones, after the swallow, and there is a touch of mint in the finish

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation

Overall: A very nice example of the style and a great finish to the Evil Twin trifecta I sampled this evening

look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance has a thick brown brown head that lasts for days over a cola base.

Nose is mostly malt, with fresh rain and dark chocolate and yeast and oats.

Taste is initially bitter, with sweet cola. Not a lot of other flavors; muted from the alcohol, but this doesn't feel like a bad thing.

Mouthfeel is full, acerbic from the high alcohol, with a good amount of carbonation, and a slight oil slickness.

Overall, this is a stout with a ton of character.
