3.7/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a jet black, and is topped by a chocolatey head; excellent retention, and excellent lacing.

S: Smells like chocolate covered espresso beans.

T: Lacks bitterness and the coffee seems a bit under developed. It is similar to the smell; however, it is taken down a notch.

M: Watery and a little thin.

O: I like this beer; however, it could do with some simple recipe revisions that would make it stellar.

Serving type: bottle

3.7/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Sampled December 2013 from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Very dark color with a nice tan head. The head lasted a long time, and left a thin coating on the inside of the glass.

Smell: There are roasted coffee aromas, along with some strong malt aromas. The combination made for an interesting aroma. Not much of a hop smell.

Taste: Full-bodied with an interesting mix of malt, and coffee. There is a little chocolate flavor as well. As with the aroma, there is not much of a hop flavor to balance the malt.

Mouth feel: Full-bodied, but very smooth. Very creamy.

Overall: Good stout. I enjoyed the bottle that I drank, but the coffee flavor can dominate.
