Poured into a glass mug. Pours dark brown to black with a thick, light tan head. Some ruby light is visible along the bottom of the glass. There are aromas of dark roasted malts, chocolate, nuts, and toffee. The tasty follows the nose and the mouthfeel is creamy. The roastiness is pretty mild overall with some mild toffee sweetness. The chocolate and nut notes also play well with the rest of the flavors, producing a well-balanced brew. The carbonation is moderate and the body is full. This is an easy drinking stout. This is a very good beer.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Deep rich brown with ruby red highlights. Not a hint of black, just dark deep brown. Minimal head. Small, brownish-white collar. No lacing.

Smell: Roasted malts, tootsie roll sweetness, some darker cocoa notes running through the black. Some hints of citrus. Caramel malt sweetness. Some alcohol and dark fruit, mainly raisins and apple and plum. Gritty milk chocolate.

Taste: Roasted and seriously overcooked and caramelized malts. Breast with sweet chocolate notes. Tootsie roll sweetness coupled with milk chocolate and a touch of bitter cocoa. Some backing citrus. Deep fruity notes push ripe apple and plum. Oddly sweet. Some of the sweetness drips as the beer warms. Slight roasted element helps cut it. Chocolate notes are a bit weak overall.

Mouthfeel: Body runs a little thinner than medium. Smooth with a lightish carbonation. A touch of creaminess with a nice clean finish.

Overall: Stout? Rosary brown ale? Porter? A bit of it all.

This is an angsty teen of a beer. A lot of things going on that ultimately don't make a ton of sense. Not bad, but there are better takes on the style for at least the same price.

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

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a standard pint.

A: Dark brown. Medium carbonation. Pours about a half finger, bubbly brown-white head. Settles quickly. No real lacing.

S: Roasted espresso and almonds, and a little black licorice.

T: Nutty roasted dark coffee.

M: Lightly sweet in the front, lightly bitter in the finish. Full, heavy body.

D: Sip and enjoy.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Dark hue, maybe a little too much carbonation, not much of a head, and no real lacing. Nuts and coffee with black licorice in the nose. Full roasted nutty coffee malt body. Overall, this is a good quaff.
