3.9/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from bottle into NERAX imperial pint glass.
A: Nice dark brown, not quite black. 3/4 in. tan head which drops to a thin covering. Good lacing that sticks around to the bottom of the pint.
S: Coffee and some very faint chocolate and smoke. Not an overwhelming aroma, but not bad either.
T: Coffee and smoked malt are right up front. There's a touch of chocolate and caramel sweetness in the undertone. A slightly bitter/metallic finish, but it's not bothersome. Solid, enjoyable taste.
M: Generally good. Not as creamy/rich as many stouts out there, but still has a full enough body to let you know you are drinking a stout. Carbonation felt a little harsh.
D: With an ABV of under 5% this has session written all over it if you are a fan of the dark.
Notes: This is one of the better "Brewmaster Collection" brews I've had from SA. I wish it had better bar distribution as it would make a great alternative to the usual dry stout triumvirate of Guinness/Murphy's/Beamish on offer at most places.
