3.87/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Very cool looking pour.. almost looked like nitro. Pouring it into an english pint glass the light mocha / tan colored head almost seemed to shoot down into the glass rather then rise to the top. It built about 4 fingers tall and didn't settle for a few minutes. Nice lacing. Near black color, just a few rays of light shine through revealing the brownish hue.

S: Subtle aroma overall. Picking up a fruity spicey english type hop aroma, think pears and green apple, lemon zest. with some piney notes and spice (very unexpected but nice). Lots of interesting esters, I believe from the yeast used. Light bready and toasty notes.

T: Moderate amount of hop flavor (for the style) without much bitterness. The same pine and spicey-fruity hop flavors coming through. Milk chocolate and a root beer/molasses character. Light caramel and bready sweetness.

M: Nice creamy slick texture to this beer. Mild carbonation levels with no astringency. Medium to lower bodied.

O: A creamy, chocolatey, smooth drinking stout with a significant hop character. This one isn't going to win any awards but it sure goes down nice. The hop character was a little unexpected and I want to try this after it has a few months on it. Luckily I bought a second bottle at DLD.

On tap at Studio 35 Columbus. Nice change of pace beer in between all the other hoppy pales from 3Floyds.

Nothing special, best quality was the thickness from the oatmeal

Has a light coffee nose sweetened with dark sugars and seasoned with a hint of cinnamon and a whiff of chocolate.
It pours dark brilliant brown with a fluffy 1” tan cap.
The attack begins with chocolate, coffee, and big spicy grain flavors. Although malt driven, very well rounded.
A creamy, silky smooth chewy body has a touch of slickness and oiliness.
