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

330-mL can. Unsure of bottling date.

Very dark chestnut brown. 1-finger dark tan head. Decent alcohol legs. 1/2-finger collar lingers. Malt roast, sweet cream, touch of cola. Vigorous swirl opens up licorice and fruit. The dark fruit intensifies with warmth

like Tsunami, the roast doesn't get acrid here. all told, however, the flavor's a tad muted - dark fruit (more similar to an ris or baltic porter), dark brown bread sweetness, but less coffee, dark chocolate than I'd like

thinner mouthfeel, despite the creaminess on the nose, but very, very drinkable. ultimately, I enjoyed this, but I think it strays off style

Dark black with a creamy head. Some chocolate, cocoa and dark roasted malt make up the smell. Smooth mouthfeel. Chocolate, some slight bitterness, and a strong alcohol flavor comprise the taste. A decent, strong stout. A little heavy on the alcohol taste, but otherwise is an OK Stout.
