look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Foamy multi-sized bubbles hold strong to form a rocky head, so stickage is seen also. Stout black in colour, what else would you expect.

Raw mineraly, steely, faint yeast, burnt raisin, woody charcoal and roasted grain aroma.

Viscous crispness though a full body and creamy mouth feel. Soft burnt grain and charcoal flavours burst upon the palate with woody and earthy tones. Big-layered sweetness that is not cloying in any way, more of a flowing and creamy residual dextrin sweetness. The roasted character gives off a brownie like flavour. Hints of mild black currant and burnt raisins come from the fruity character of the yeast. Speaking of yeast there is a fresh earthiness from this brew being bottle conditioned. Finishes sweet with mild roasted flavours that push on forever.

A saucy stout and a fat one at that, full flavoured and quite complex. A very exciting ale to sip and savour as you venture through the 22 ounces.

4.47/5  rDev +6.2%
look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Presentation: 1 pint 6 oz brown bomber, bottle-conditioned. No freshness date, but an excellent explantion of the beer, how to store it (upright, that's right) and proper serving temps (45F-50F). Kudos for that info.

Appearance: Pours an opaque black beer with a massive 4 finger tan foam head -- no sign of it ever going away.

Smell: Wonderful semi-fruity aroma mixed with earthy, metallic and roasted malt aromas. Chocolate notes weave things together.

Taste: Hot damn! This is one insanely smooth beer! Mouthfeel is thick, but soft, milky and silky in its consistency. Loads of malt body. Sweet, but in a chocolate cake sort of way and very more-ish ... as in I want more dammit! Touch of molasses-like and raw-honey-like flavour. Malts are backed by a juicy fruit character. The beer then goes dry with a semi-sharp astringency, but for a brief moment where a roasted quality meets a subtle hop bitterness ... it soon gets coated with more malty goodness. Metallic, earthy notes. Light smokey / burnt flavours around the edges. Dry, grainy finish.

Notes: A freagin' outstanding stout! Seems more like a sweet stout though? But, to hell with it ... this is a tasty brew! Massive, complex and thoroughly enjoyable! One of the better stouts to have met my palate in recent days, and one that actually excited my palate. Seek out this beer immediately.

4.04/5  rDev -4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12 oz. bottle poured into a stout glass.

Appearance: Pours a near-black with very minimal tan head. No lacing. Looks dense.

Aroma: Smells of black coffee, toasted nuts, some dark fruits, raisins, and a good amount of dark chocolate. Nice bold, complex aromas.

Taste: Taste follows the nose, with dark chocolate and dark fruits leading the way. Alcohol isn't very noticeable. Some pretty good bitterness up front and on the finish. It gets slightly less bitter as it warms. Pretty classic dry stout flavors.

Mouthfeel: This is a big, thick stout. It's a sipper for me.

Overall: This beer has earned its reputation as a sought-after craft stout. Do yourself a favor and find it if you haven't. Bold flavors, good density, terrific aromas. Great stuff.
