4.38/5 rDev +8.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5
A: Pours a very dark brown, definitely not black. Looks nice and thick. The head, also looking rather thick (that's what she said), reminds me of the color of chocolate milk, and eventually settles at about half a finger. Not much lacing.
S: Cured pork is the strongest scent I get, though there is also some campfire in there as well. A bit of sweet and sour like you sometimes get from rye, and faintly in the background are some faint, chocolately stout notes.
T: Smokiness is more subdued. Starts off with some sweeter chocolate notes, then some bacon smokiness comes in towards the middle. This last through the end, but tapers off as some roasty stout notes come out. A subdued, pleasant smoky aftertaste lasts for a decent while. There is a bit of alcohol towards the middle and the end, but it isn't too strong and isn't unpleasant, just imparting a gentle burn that I don't notice much.
M: Excellent. Pretty thick and coating, but I don't feel like it's overly heavy, perhaps because there is some carbonation that lasts through to the latter half of each sip.
D: This is really drinkable for a big ol' stout. If it was any more drinkable, I feel like it would have to be thinner or less flavorful, and that'd be no good.
A well-balanced brew that's not nearly as hot as the past two anniversary offerings were when fresh. I would've liked some more of that smokiness from the nose to come into play in the taste, but it's still quite a tasty beer, and definitely worth getting a four-pack of.
