look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.75
served from a bottle into pint glass
pours extremely dark brown/black with a decent sized brown head. Absolutely beautiful.
Smells of chocolate, espresso, nuts, little bit of caramel and bread. You can detect a bit of alcohol but not as much as the ABV would suggest. No hop aroma present to me.
Taste is about the same as the nose with chocolate and espresso taking the lead. Perfect amount of roasted flavor without the overpowering astringency some stouts seem to have. Perfect balance of sweetness and roasted bitterness.
Carbonation is perfectly appropriate for the style; maybe a little on the high side but I kinda dig it. Mouthfeel is nice and silky without being overly syrupy/chewy. Very good.
Overall, this is my new favorite stout; it's perfect. It has all the good chocolatey/coffee notes and great malt presence without the assertive astringency. Reasonable price as well.
