look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: pours a deep cola brown to black with some ruby red tinges along the sides when held to light... Moderate amount of coffee-like head that remains for a time after the pour
S: not too strong aroma-wise...some light malts but that's about it.
T: roasted flavors up front but not overpowering...mainly coffee, some dark chocolate, and a touch of vanilla-like sweetness towards the end.
M: smooth, somewhat thick, texture allows for the taste to sort of linger in your mouth.
O: one of my favorite stouts...has that roasted taste that you would expect from a stout but adds just enough sweetness to make it interesting

Poured a 1" pale mocha head. Body is burnt umber brown but still dark as coffee. Smell is very mildly malt. Taste is actually even milder on malt than the smell, and there's really not much else going on besides malt. Body is medium leaning towards light. All in all I think this is just a mainstream cream stout and quite forgettable.
