look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Very dark brown, almost black. A finger's width of tan head with a pretty decent retention and lots of lacing.

S: Great smell. Darkly roasted malts, coffee and chocolate. Smells like a stout should, deep and rich.

T: Tastes pretty much like it smells. Lots of chocolate malts up front which give way to a nice roasted coffee flavor. Not much on the finish, which makes the flavor kind of fall flat. There's not a whole lot of complexity to it, either.

M: Heavy body, medium carbonation. Good mouthfeel.

D: It is a drinkable beer, but there are better stouts out there.
