4.06/5 rDev +2.3%
Serving Type: 12 oz bottle poured into a stemmed pilsner (beer tulip) glass.
Appearance: Deep, very dark brown. Large frothy head of brown foam with good lacing.
Smell: Dark roasted malt, sweet fruit (plum) and spice. Very slight savory hints - soy sauce?
Taste: Dark roasted malt up front, followed by complex fruit (tugs between sweet and sour) and a bitter coffee finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium, velvety smooth body with moderate carbonation.
Overall: An enjoyable stout to sip, with interesting aromas and flavors from the use of Belgian yeast.

4.2/5 rDev +5.8%
Poured from a bottle into a nonic pint.
A - Pours jet-black with no traces of highlights. Two-finger light brown head of mixed size bubbles. Rings of sticky lacing.
S - Powerful aroma of black coffee, licorice, bitter chocolate, smoke, and dark fruit. Smells good.
T - More prominent espresso coffee taste than in the nose; additional flavors of baker's chocolate, plum, blackberry, and charcoal. A good balance between sweet and bitter stout flavors. Hides the 9.7 ABV very well.
M - Medium bodied. Higher carbonation than expected (higher side of medium). Creamy at the start with a good amount of citrus acidity in the finish which sounds weird, but it works. Mouth feel seems to shift and flow during the course of the sip. One of the more unique and complex I have had.
O - A complex and flavorful stout with a unique mouth feel. Enjoyed it and would buy again.
