3.8/5 rDev -0.3%
A- very very dark brown, opaque almost black, barely a head, but a thin creamy one
S - espresso/coffee, dark chocolate, light smoke and roast
T - same as smell, coffee is the main taste, its pretty smokey with roasted malt, earthy, some bitterness in the after taste
M - smooth, creamy, medium carbonation, medium-full bodied
O - This is a good stout. Nice earthy roasted malt with a strong coffee taste but not unwelcoming. The alcohol is masked by the other flavors. Smells fantastic.

3.68/5 rDev -3.4%
12 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 12/5/2013. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 1 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, light smoke, and roasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and solid complexity of coffee and dark/roasted malt notes; with decent strength. Taste of roasted coffee, chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, dark bread, and roasted earthiness. Light roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of roasted coffee, chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, toast, dark bread, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and solid complexity of dark/roasted malt and coffee flavors; with a nice roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, moderately creamy, and slightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice coffee stout. Good balance and solid complexity of dark/roasted malt and coffee flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A nicely enjoyable offering.
