look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
A: Black as night and super thick. The bubbles take some time to work their way to the top.
S: A subtle sweetness. Some coffee and chocolate as well. Maybe a little marshmallow. Pretty light smelling for how thick it seems.
T: A sourness and alcohol are the star players here. Roasty coffee and a sweetness come in second. It's an interesting taste but I'm not sure this is what I was hoping for in a stout. I think if the alcohol was toned down a little bit this would be a lot nicer.
M: Sits with a heavy body. Bubbles compliment it decently.
Overall a pretty nice beer. It's not mind blowing and that alcohol is the star player which isn't what I was looking for. Maybe worth checking out but not crazy about it.

Served on nitro tap at Farmhouse in Burlington.
Serves up soooo nice looking, jet black body with half a finger of thick creamy khaki head.
Not a high volume of aromas, but it was rich and roasty, good sweetness.
Taste was delicious touch on the thin side.
Mouthfeel was silky, velvety a touch thin.
Overall, a lot to like with this beer.
