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

black pour, dual-toned colors on the head. nice and creamy, but dissipates quickly.
sweet malts and coffee in the nose.
taste is slightly bitter with some espresso notes, stout-like qualities, but thinner than most others.
overall, it's very decent. but many low-abv stouts are. it is the higher-abv stout with exceptional quality which gains the notoriety, but this one will do. very nice!

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

Appearance: very dark, almost black body; big frothy tan/brown head after aggressive pour; good lacing

Smell: malty, roasted grain; coffee; dried figs

Taste: creamy malt with roasted grain bite up front; notes of coffee and light hops in the mid; finishes semi sweet with a low hop bite overall; excellent flavor

Mouthfeel: creamy and almost chewy; medium carbonation
