look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Quite black beer with a thick, lasting, dense head of tan foam.
S: Highly roasted aroma.
T: Flavor follows the smell, with a pungent amount of roast. One of the most roasted stouts I've had in a long time, in fact. It's not bad, but rather one-dimensional.
M: Full-bodied.

Eh, not something I think I'll go for again.

12oz bottle
2013

A- Near black, light moca colored head about 1 finger high. Light lacing, visable bubbles up the sides.

S- Heavy coffee up front, some malts, bread, muted chocolates.

T- Coffee, malts, some chocolate, strong coffee finish with a bitter acidy finish

M- Medium, slick, decent.

O- like the smell, taste was somewhat of a let down, didn't care for the bitter acid like finish. Coming from one of my favorite brewerys this was a disappointment. Maybe it sat to long in my beer celler, will get a fresher one and re-review at some point.
