Picked up the last bottle on the shelf at work. Poured into a pint glass...

A- This brew pours a very dark, reddish brown with a thin cream colored head. Carbonation is subtle, but still noticeable.

S- Aroma is all malt, with scents of toast, coffee, and a slight hint of bittersweet chocolate.

T- The beer hits the palate sweet at first, with hints of toffee, chocolate, and hot toast. It finishes with flavors of strong espresso, caramel, and has just a slight hop backbone.

M- Although low in alcohol, this beer is still medium to full-bodied. The flavors coat the tongue, and remain for minutes after each sip.

D- Overall, this is a stout that could be a session beer. Not too strong, not too overpowering, and very easy to drink. It's definitely a beer that I will be buying again.

3.63/5  rDev -6.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

500ml bottle poured into a rocks glass (sadly the only glass available in my hotel room so take that with a grain of salt)
A: Very dark brown with a 1/2-finger head
S:Roasted coffee beans, cocoa powder
T: Dark malt, watered down iced coffee. I can definitely tell it's a stout but it's missing a full-bodied character most stouts have
M: Smooth but a bit thin for the style
O: This has all the right components but tastes a bit watered down. Definitely sessionable and by no means bad, though

4.03/5  rDev +3.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - dark but not opaque pouring with a frothy beige head which subsides fairly quickly to a thin clinging layer of small bubbles
S - roast coffee with a hint of sweetness
T - slightly sweet malt followed by strong roast coffee and hints of chocolate with a dry bitter finish
M - medium/full bodied and moderately carbonated
O - a very well balanced and respectable stout. There are better stouts of this style out there but on the other hand there are a lot worse. Would go back for another.
