3.21/5 rDev -24.1%
Was expecting so much from this beer, considering it's high ranking and glowing review (and gift!) from my neighbors. Perhaps I just don't care for this style, but I found it way to syrupy. The malt profile doesn't seem to balance out the beer at all, and I found myself making terrible faces every time I took a sip. It's a cross between coffee and cough syrup, in my opinion. Not my favorite. The appearance however, is lovely!

Bottle from October.
Pours out viscous and black from the bottle and looks lovely in a glass. Pitch black with a mocha head.
Lots of roasty goodness in the smell. Dark chocolate, dark fruit, and some alcohol.
It tastes fairly bitter like a Yeti. Rounds out with some sweetness. Big roast character, dark chocolate, and dark fruit.
Smooth and full chewy mouthfeel.
A great stout. I feel like an aged bottle would be heavenly.
