look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A - Black, with a thin mocha head that has some retention and lacing.

S - Strong roast, oak, vanilla, booziness, burnt sugar.

T/M - Roasted malts hit first, and are followed up by the bourbon notes. Mouthfeel drops after the initial taste, feeling thin and watery. Booziness settles in and dominates the lingering aftertaste, which lacks depth.
O - Looks good, smells good, but the thin body and booziness just seems out of place.

Pours pure black with a tiny tan colour head.

The smell is toast and coffee . Smells good but a little weak.

The taste is chocolate like a shake,milky and smooth, very nice. There also some coffee and roasted malts.

Mouth feel is fairly thick and creamy with low carbonation.

Overall I'd say this is pretty good the chocolate flavour was great,smooth and creamy.

I'm a rookie at tasting and reviewing but making notes so I can remember where I've been.

The smell was exactly what I was hoping the taste would be. A sort of rich molasses like presentation. The taste was was pleasant but weaker than I expected for a stout.

Overall a good experience but a little pricy for just good.
