4/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass

Appearance – Pours a black color with thin brown head. The head faded fast leaving almost no lacing.

Smell – The smell is a wonderful mix of dark chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. Mixed with these aromas are lighter aromas of some hops as well as a light toasted nut aroma.

Taste – The taste begins with some of the chocolate detected in the nose. This is mixed with a roasted malt flavor. Together these two, with a light sweet flavor create the initial taste of roasty milk chocolate. As the taste advances however, the sweetness and some of the chocolate flavor begin to fade as tastes of espresso come to the tongue. The bitterness increases at the expense of the chocolate flavor as the taste moves to the end eventually finishing, when combined with a light nutty and more earthy hop flavor, to leave a roasted bitter flavor on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The beer is just a little bit above average thickness with the carbonation level being just below average. The lower carbonation is very fitting as it is a beer that is made to coat the tongue. The body however could use a slight boost in chewiness to really accentuate the roasted flavors.

Overall – This is a pretty good stout. It has a very nice flavor profile as well as a very nice aroma. Only thing holding it back is the lack of an lacing (which really can be pardoned) as well as the somewhat too thin of a body. Overall though it is quite nice.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

This pours a dark brown/black color with a decent, foamy head. The aroma is filled with cocoa, coffee, and toasted malts. The flavor is well-balanced and smooth. It’s a stout that isn’t too heavy or too light. Smooth malts and cocoa are very evident. This finishes a with a bit of chalky, malt after taste.
