look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Poured from a 12oz. bottle into pint glass.
The color is a dark brown with a finger of foamy brownish head and some nice lacing left on the glass.
The smell is roasty with a nice dark malt aroma. There is a nice coffee bean aroma coming off the nose and is even a little espresso-like.
The taste is more dark malts with a nice coffee flavor running throughout this beer. From start to finish there is a coffee flavor that is present. There is some sweetness at first with some dark chocolate flavor that slides into the background with some burnt flavor being reveled.
The feel of this beer is big but not too big. There is a rich flavor and a bit of a dark heavy coffee flavor but the body holds some of the heaviness but lets is slowly slip a away giving a nice drinkable feel.

A: Pours a dark, black with a short lived dark tan head.
S: Very malty aroma with no hop aroma. Lots of dark fruit, raisin. good amount of chocolate and coffee. Some alcohol notes in the aroma.
T: Big burst of coffee and cream with a chocolate hit soon after with a bit of raisin. Black coffee makes up the bulk of the aftertaste with a mild black olive note . No hop flavor to speak of. The alcohol is hidden well and it has a slight acidic bite. Finishes dry.
M: Medium full body almost chewy with low carbonation.
O: This is a decent stout. Big coffee flavor but for me a little too big, It lacks something, perhaps a complexity that other stouts have. It's definitely a beer that I would have no problem sitting back with on a cold winter night.
