look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Poured from 330mL bottle into a clear mug.

Appearance: extremely dark brown; nearly black with a finger of frothy tan foam atop. The head doesn't stick around all that long, though.

Smell: nice roasty element with a bit of chocolate character and some alcoholic fruitiness. It's not especially dry, but still pretty good-smelling regardless.

Taste: drier than the aroma with a decent roasty flavor. There's a little bit of astringency and acridity from the roasted malt, but that's stylistically appropriate.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a good level of carbonation and a decent creaminess. Not bad.

Overall: it's a pretty middle-of-the-road stout, but it is also well within style guidelines and relatively drinkable. Not too bad at all.

Pours black from the bottle with a minimal head that disappears quickly. The first thing you smell is smoke and charred wood, maybe a touch of unsweetened cocoa. The smoke only increases on the tongue. The chocolate is slightly more pronounced with just a bit of dark fruit hiding in the background. Medium mouth and very, very dry. It reminds me of a campfire, but a decent representation of the style.

Pours a deep black with a medium brown head. Aroma of dark roasted caramel malt, cacao with some mild dark fruit notes. Taste is of sweet dark roasted caramel malt, cacao and some espresso notes. Palate is a medium body, slight creamy mouth feel with good carbonation. Finish is a flavorful dark roasted caramel and chocolate malt some distant dark fruit and mild liquorice notes ending with a moderate bitter dry roasted malt and espresso flavor. A very nice tasty brew.
