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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: not much head on pour, feel down fast... dark brown liquid... no lace

S: roasted barley kernels, fresh ground coffee, bit of a fresh-baked, cake-ish malt... certainly some pungent, earthy, piney, mildly citrus hopping filling it out.... very inviting! like a coffee hard candy with a herbal angle

T: naked, bitter, slightly acrid roasted barley with aggressive, punchy hops... actually, this is quite bitter-hoppy, quite dark lightly-charred roasty, with a tiny pinch of salty-sweetish dark cocoa in the background, maybe some toasted nut... roasty flavor matched with ripping hop bitterness lingers long on the palate

M: lightly prickly up front on first contact, solid medium-light-bodied base... not quite viscous - actually, there's an obvious soft, rounded, unfermentables core, but the bitter, biting elements provide a loud buzz, static scrub, but balanced... rather dry in the finish

O: pretty darn good... American sensibilities, for sure... I'd love to have this on tap either around town here or at the brewery... probably won't seek out another bottle though
