4.55/5  rDev +21%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

1/2 cm tan head off a pretty vigorous pour. Head diminished but laced slightly. Pitch black with only a slight red highlight. Smells super nutty sweet mocha chocolate (like one of those peanut butter cookies with the chocolate kiss on top). Tastes just as good (again one of those cookies comes to mind, but this time washed down with some roasty coffee). Sweetness hangs on almost to the end but at the last minute it quickly turns to the proper dryness for the style. A nice chewy mouthfeel without being overly heavy. I was getting pretty tired of stouts in general because some offering seem a bit watery while others can be chokingly heavy. This perfect body and balance between sweet and dry of this offering has changed my mind.

3.23/5  rDev -14.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

A - Amber-dark appearance with a thick cream head. A bit on the light side for a stout.

S - Healthy, coffee scents with a bit of metallic edge.

T - Relatively empty taste for a full stout. Relatively bitter compared to what is to be expected of a quality stout.

M - Good, hearty taste but a bit on the bitter side (~45-50 IBUs) for a stout.

O - A notable stout. Definitely recommendable. Not, however, what could be had with similar brews.
