5/5 rDev +19.3%
This was a wonderful, wonderful suprise. It ranks among the top RIS I have ever had (I've had quite a few)
A: Pours a dark, viscous black. Some lacing visible on the glass. Maintains a decent finger of milk chocolate foam. Completely opaque; no light escapes this dark beast. Coats the glass nicely.
S: A wonderful aromatic delight. Smells of dark, roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee. A little bit of booze is present, but you really have to smell for it
T: Wonderfully balanced. A little on the bitter side to offset some of the malty sweetness. Notes of dark, roasted coffee and dark chocolate gently even out the sweetness of the malt. Deffinitely not a syrupy sweet beer; but I like my stouts with a little tang. Some faint prune and raisen notes present. Alcohol is only present very mildy as it warms the back of your throat; otherwise not too boozy.
M: Velvety smooth. This is a beer that can make your spoon stand up. It coats your tongue and mouth like it coats the glass. Deffinitely not for the faint of heart. This is a meal, but the best meal I've ever had.
Overall, this one is up there. One of the best. Would not change a thing about it at all.

Had this on tap at the brewery tasting room
served in not sure what type of glass but it was tap
it has a great aroma of roasty chocolate hint of coffee if I remember correctly
i could drink this beer on a regular basis
it was smooth chocolate roasty the way a stout should be
had a great feel in the mouth went down real nice
i feel that more places should brew top quality beer such as this
a perfect example of the style
