look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Arrives with a film of foam pancaked on top o the fudge brown liquid; leaves a few dots behind

Smell: Roast, graham cracker, dark chocolate and coffee

Taste: Dark chocolate on the opening, with graham cracker and coffee flavors developing; roasty, in the middle, with some burnt caramel and smoke; the finish is somewhat sweet

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation; some warmth in the gullet

Overall: A complex brew though a bit too sweet for my palate

From 11/30/13 notes. Had this on tap at the brewery in Ocean. 2012 vintage.

a - Pours a pitch black color with one inch of dark tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks very nice for a big stout.

s - Smells of coffee, roasted malts, nuts, toasted malts, dark chocolates, light sweet chocolate, and bitter malts. Nice roasty notes with some good coffee up front and bitter chocolate as well.

t - Tastes of roasted malts, sweet chocolate, coffee, cream, vanilla, toasted malts, burnt malts, nuts, and bitter dark chocolate. More sweet chocolate than the nose and some vanilla, with a lot of roasted notes again. A slight step up from the nose for me.

m - Full bodied stout and low carbonation. Crazy smooth and creamy, and no heat at all. Awesome mouthfeel.

o - Overall I'm not sure how this was a year ago but it is tasting fantastic right now. Very roasty, with a lot of coffee in the nose and a lot of sweet chocolate in the taste. Very drinkable for the ABV I loved it; hoping they bottle this one eventually.

Black body, with a high quantity of ruby highlights.

Strong assertive coffee and chocolate aromas.

Kiss of chocolate up front, followed by coffee. Assertive hops at the swallow.

Mouthfeel is a bit wimpy for the style, need more to chew on.

Not a classic, but definitely enjoyable, and looking forward to future versions.
