3.66/5 rDev -0.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
A - 3.5 - Black. Enduring tan head the texture of foam rubber. Not so attractive.
S - 3.5 - Spices reminiscent of a pumpkin ale. Something at the edge of chocolate
T - 3.75 - Sort of wants to be a christmas brown ale more than a stout, though there's some stouty dark chocolate and a hint of char. It lacks some punch and substance on the back end.
M - 3.5 - Just shy of medium body. A little sticky. Fairly carbonated. Mild tongue sting leaves a dry feeling like tannins and mild hop abrasion.
O - 3.75 - Not bad, but underwhelming and doesn't quite come together, seemingly trapped between cohesive styles. There's also a hole in its middle where the flavor goes diffuse and vague.
