12 oz bottle - 2013 batch.
Letting this one warm to about 60 degrees F before doing my review other than appearance.
A: Side pour into a tulip. Almost no head. What is there is a tan-ish, off-white color and all but disappeared within a minute. Seems to be under-carbonated. Almost no lacing and what is there is oily and disappears within seconds.Dark chocolate brown in color. With light shining through it, it is deep red brownish in color
S: Smells a bit off, burnt malt I think is the culprit. Some sweetness. Chocolate but I don't think it was the best of dark chocolate, caramel.
T: About the same as the smell. Some un-welcomed bite that I guess is coming from the overdone malt. I think there may be some citrus and other fruit in there but I am distracted by the other parts too much to call it.
M: Starts with a bite that I am not fond of. Gets soft and creamy in the middle instead of up front. Bitter kind of funky.
O: The 2012 batch seems to have been a lot better from what I remember. Not sure because I have come a long way since then and never even reviewed it. I just remember drinking the 2012, really liking it and wanting more. It is not bad. Its just not as good as last year I don't think. I bought a sixer and I will drink it but will not be buying more this year.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.
