look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass...
A - just as a stout should look - solid black with very faint hues of garnet on the sides. Had a thin layer of soda-fizz brown head that dispersed after a good side pour.
S - dry rather than milky. Hints of charcoal and roasted coffee beans.
T - Distinct layers of taste here. Starts off very chocolatey in the undertone, and a very broad taste of coffee and roasted malt. Next, warms to a shade of chocolate alcohol; finishes off with a strong alcohol aroma and taste in the back.
M - quite a bit thinner than your average stout. Had the consistency and mouthfeel of soda, rather than the milkey mouthfeel of other stouts I've had.
D - If you're a fan of malt, this goes down great. Very easy to sip.

Appearance: Nice dark color with amber hues towards the sides. The light tan head is billowy and stays with on every sip you take, the lacing, though thin, marks every stop you take along the way.
Smell: A little hollow, but chocolate and roasted malts flavors do come through as it hits warmer temperatures. A little raisin and alcohol smell eventually come out.
Taste: Sweet and malty overall, the malts come out around the center of your mouth and the chocolate flavors towards the back of your throat. Mildly bitter on the corners of your mouth and there is a slight alcohol flavors that accompanies the bitterness.
Mouthfeel: This is a light-to-medium bodied stout with mild carbonation.
Overall: not a bad stout, a little light bodied in my opinion but well worth trying. This stout has good malts and chocolate characters to it and the hops are hidden but balanced.
