4.39/5 rDev -0.5%
Appearance: Pours out just about pitch black, with 1" of dark khaki head. Pretty good head retention but below average lacing. Viscous looking. Overall, a nice looking stout.
Smell: Light roast and char, milk chocolate, vanilla, hints of dark fruits and oak. Smells of residual sugars, a bit sweet but otherwise very complex. Good.
Taste: Light char, big vanilla and milk chocolate presence, a bit of oak and barrel notes. Fairly healthy alcohol bite on the finish, but does not end messily.
Mouthfeel/Overall: Very full bodied stout, with just about the perfect level of fine carbonation. Residual sweet finish, and the alcohol burn hints at the 16%+ ABV. Overall, a very complex stout. While it was on the sweeter side and I probably would not want to drink 12oz in more than one sitting, I enjoyed it immensely.
