look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Dark brown, almost black with an off-white to tan head, moderate in size that dissapates quickly. Not much in the way of lacing. Looks like a pretty basic stout, a kind of flat one I suppose.

Woowie, super strong smell of chocolate, vanilla, graham cracker and just plain sweet malts. Smells like dessert, one I want to gobble down in short order. I do wish there was a tad more of roasty malts thrown in there too though, so it doesn't just smell like dessert, but damn it sure does smell good.

Very similar to the smell, and much to my surprise and pleasure, it isn't too sweet or artificial tasting. I definitely taste the stout in there - yes, the roastiness is a tad buried, but the chocolate, graham cracker, marshmallow flavors really work nicely here with the style and taste fresh and well done. This is one tasty trest, I have to say.

Slightly thick, moderate carbonation, smooth - like a milk or oatmeal stout. Feels every bit like a stout the way I like to feel it in my mouth.

I had no idea what to expect with this one, but I had to try it. It was well beyond my expectations - super tasty and actually works. Yes, it's super sweet, but no more so than any good chocolate sweet stout - they just add a few more things in there, but add plenty of roast and hops to tone it down. I think the only thing that would elevate it to amazing for me would be just a touch more roast, a touch more bitterness - but not much. Really enjoyed this one a lot, and I wouldn't hesistate to recommend.
