4.15/5  rDev +3.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

I grew up about 10 minutes from Adamstown, but I moved away before I realized that Stoudt's brewed. I was excited to try this stout, and I wasn't disappointed. The Fat Dog poured a deep chocolate color with a reddish glow and a nice tan head. The aroma is a bit muted, but the sweet malts are apparent. The flavors of caramel and a bit of coffee come out in the the dark malts, and although the alcohol is not a big part of the flavor, this stout certainly warms the soul. It's like liquid comfort food, and I will certainly get this again.

4.21/5  rDev +5.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Look: Pours a very deep, dark brown. Not quite black. About a dark brown as you can get before I'd call it black. Nice foamy two finger head, which is retains for a little bit of time.

Smell: Oats with a hint of chocolate and sweet vanilla cream. Almost has a very tiny hint of alcohol, but it's not obvious.

Taste: Coffee like flavor, Sweet upfront. Almost has a wood like taste to it. A slight hoppy finish but very mild.

Mouthfeel: A bit more carbonation "burn" that I'd prefer, but not too bad here. It is full bodied and creamy

Overall: The big pup on the label is adorable. This style of beer is one of my favorites and I think Stoudts did a very good job.
