look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
Bottled 10/18/12 and poured into a Sam Adams "perfect pint" glass.
Appearance: Pitch black ... no light getting through this one. There's about a two finger head that goes away pretty swiftly, but there's some fantastic brown lacing.
Smell: Fantastic. Super sweet milk chocolate aromas, coffee, caramel, sweetness... make this beer a damn candle.
Taste/feel: Up front you get that extremely creamy texture which is awesome -- smooth all the way through. The taste is somewhat burnt, which turns me off a good bit, but the bitterness isn't too extreme, and the super roasty malt flavors make it pretty drinkable. Overall, somewhat disappointed with this. The smell was promising, but the taste left a lot to be desired ... it's just sort of bland. Still, it's easy drinking.
