look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

12 oz bottle pours a rich black color with a modest cap of tan head. Average retention and lace.

Nose is chocolate, marshmallows, vanilla, wood and char. Smells like a pretty nice barrel aged stout.

Taste is a little light in the loafers so to speak, the malts need some beef. The barrel character is pretty nice, and the roast well integrated. It just seems to lack body and sweetness that would go a long way here, certainly thin is a good descriptor. The aroma was good here, but the taste leaves me wanting [a better beer]. I would be hard pressed to give this one another go.
