3.05/5 rDev -16.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75
Dark brown pour (rusty red highlights), thinner-looking body, one-finger thick head.
Smells of cocoa and malts, but nothing too special of that sort.
Tastes like the smell but for me the malts and grains are at the forefront, and i do get a chalkiness. Somewhat bitter and cocoa-like, with a finish that is drying.
Pretty well carbonated, thin body. Normally ok but for a beer with this flavor profile I'd have thought it would be better less bubbly and thicker.
Overall this was lackluster for me. What roasted chocolate flavors that are present are quite muted. That chalky presence doesn't add wellness to this brew. I just didn't enjoy this one.

3.64/5 rDev 0%
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.
