look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75
A- pours pitch black in color with a dark tan fizzy two-finger head that reduces to a small film floating on top, leaving no lace. Continues to fizz like a pop
S- dark and roasty malt, slightly smoky from the peat. Dark fruit and a touch of coffee
T- coffe and roasted malt with smoky peat, gives a bit of smoky campfire. Has an almost lactic like sweetness mid-palate that leads to more roasted notes on the finish, with just a touch of hop bitterness, a bit of metallic linger
M- medium body with high-fizzy carbonation leads to a super bubbly mouthfeel and finish. The carbonation is all over the place, would prefer a bit more cream and less fizz
O- This one was interesting, it drank like a milk stout with RIS malty strength. The flavor was actually quite enjoyable, but the mouthfeel seemed a bit thin for the wealth of flavor. The alcohol is hidden brilliantly and drinks as easy as a milk stout

12oz single picked up at Northbridge Pig before it closed. Poured into a tulip glass -
A: Black-brown, opaque pour; mocha head - one finger; good retention leaves a few specks of lace.
S: Milk chocolate; cocoa; sweet, roasted malt aroma.
T: Dark chocolate; coffee; fair level of hop bitterness; some smoked malt provides and extra layer of flavor; has a bit of a grapey aftertaste - reminiscent of DFH Worldwide Stout - obviously on a MUCH smaller scale.
M: Medium body; high carbonation; dry finish; feel seems a little light, though.
O: A nice stout; drinkable; tasty, with a good aroma, too; glad I tried it.
