look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

a. dark brown/ black on the pour. Careful, the head sneaks up on you. Starts near nothing, but blossoms to a full 3 finger height. Head is tan/brown in color and sits on top the beer for a while at roughly 1/3" Lacing is nice.

s. Smell of yeast dominates the after poor, giving way to malt.

t. Malt, not as sweet as I had hoped, but somewhere between outstanding and very, very good. Rounded up to a 4.

m. Excellent up front, but seems to be a grit in the finish.

O. Reminds me of a Sam Adams cream stout, which is a compliment. Not as creamy, but a solid stout. Do not be scared off by the 'sweet' title.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours black, just about opaque. The hops and grains unexpectedly dominate the smell, though the typical chocolate stout scent is found just beneath. The semi-sweet chocolate becomes the most obvious to taste, with a grainy, bitter hops lingering in the finish. It has a very light mouth feel, with an appropriate amount of carbonation. A decent stout, however there is nothing that makes it stand out in stand out in a crowd.
