3.56/5  rDev -5.3%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

From a 355 ml bottle into a snifter.

A-This brew pours creamy out of the bottle with very little carbonation. A normal pour produces about one and one-half fingers of pillow head that starts to crater and recede after a minute or two. The brew is mostly black.

S-The smell is a pleasant, if non-descript, mixture of chocolate, dark-roasted malts, and some charcoal and smoke. There is a faint bitterness.

T-The taste is smooth with charcoal flavors, a touch of smoke, some dark sweet fruit, and a little hop twang in the middle. There is a fair amount going on, but I don't know if it all comes together very well.

M-The feel is decently robust with a medium to full body. This is smooth drinking and easy to sip on.

O-As I mentioned above, there is a quite a mixture of smells and flavors here. Sometimes that is a good thing, but here the flavors don't seem to layer or integrate with one another, so my palate is left confused. This beer does get credit for good looks and for coaxing flavors out of a 6.3% stout that I would normally expect to find only in an 8 or 9 percent RIS, but the flavors here just didn't hookup.

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.
