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

Appearance: Arrives with a fudge brown color and a modest cap that leaves a few dots behind

Smell: Roasty, with chocolate and coffee notes

Taste: The roasted and chocolate elements appear, up front, with the coffee arriving in the middle; while the beer is not highly hopped, the coffee tones add some bitterness in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a bit of a creamy character; moderate carbonation

Overall: Not sure I would characterize this as an American Stout as this is a bit more of a dry Irish stout to my palate; quite a nice debut for this new brewery

First impression is coffee. There's a lot of a dark chocolate flavor in the head, which I try to encourage to form as much as possible. There's a creamy and almost slick feeling in your mouth, and by now you're getting hints of roasted malt and some bitterness.
