3.9/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Very dark brown and basically opaque. Half finger tan head with big soapy bubbles.

Aroma: Basic American Stout assets. Cream, roasted chocolate/coffee.

Taste: A semisweet roasted chocolate presence engulfs the palate in the first half and then transitions into more of a bittersweet chocolate taste. Some hop bitterness takes over near the end. You are left with a black coffee flavor in the finish. Says on the packaging that they use a "mountain of hops" in the recipe. I guess I'd agree that it is hoppier than most other American Stouts but not enough to really be noticeable. As it warms up a little, profiles of dark fruits and currants come through just a bit. It's almost like a light version of an Imperial Russian Stout. You don't taste any of the 6.3% abv.

Mouthfeel: Possibly a tad over carbonated but within the range it should be in. Medium bodied and average drinkability.

Final Thoughts: I liked this one. At just under $10 for a six-pack it's a fair deal. It's robust beyond it's 6.3% abv. Expect a big roasty profile and some decent bitterness. Would I drink it again? Yes, especially in the colder months.

This beer is dark brown / black color. It has a decent foamy head. The aroma is filled with cocoa toasted malts. Not too heavy or too light. This was a pretty good beer. I know thhat I enjoyed this beer. I would like to have it again if I can find it again.
