4.18/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

The alcohol abv in this stout was a but suprising. Then again, it is a double stout. This heavy stout poured a dark coffee color body with a cinnamon colored head. Nothing complemented the head then the rich lacing it left behind after the creamy head settled. Strong hints of chocolate immediately caught my attention, folloeed by a touch of used coffee and a hint of booze. The taste is very similar to the smell. Chocolate and once again, used coffee. Alcohol barely makes its presence in the finish but it finishes nice and would consider it a lip smacker. Mouthfeel? Well typical for a stout. Low carbonation and a medium to thich body. Overall this is one of the best stouts ive had yet. Flavourful and bitter, too.

look: 5 | smell: 2 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: Black body with a thick creamy light tan head that leaves lacing.

S: Slight metallic scent, and a hint of roasted grain.

T: Rich roasted flavor full of bitterness. Notes of coffee and cocoa. It has a very good flavor.

M: Very nice mouthfeel. Big and full bodied with good bitterness and carbonation. Very easy to drink but doesn't put me to sleep.

O: Overall it's a very good beer. I'm not sure what's going on in the scent department. That metallic note is off-putting but it's still a good beer. Stout lovers or those who enjoy a good cup of espresso will find this a very enjoyable beer. Overall the scent is really what takes this beer down a notch. It looks perfect in the glass, tastes and feels outstanding.

3.65/5  rDev -11.2%
look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Nice rich black color. Presents with a 1 finger tan head. The head has real staying power and isn't receding at all. This is a great presentation and appearance.

S: Coffee and espresso. Some mild bitter chocolate. A hint of caramel as it warms.

T: Coffee at the front moving into a more bitter midpalate. The finish is coffee again. After this one warms the booziness takes over masking some of the more pleasant tastes.

M: Right level of carbonation. Not as smooth as a TenFidy - but certainly nice for a drinkable stout. Slightly dry finish diminishes it slightly.

O: This is right on the border of too bitter for me. It might stack up as I continue along - but it is not overwhelming at first. This is a very coffee forward stout. I enjoy the strong coffee tones and the head that stays for the entire time.
