look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours an opaque yet still clear jet black in color with light to moderate amounts of active visible carbonation along the edges of the glass and a hint of dark cola brown highlights. The beer has a finger tall dense foamy tan head that slowly reduces to a very thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of dark roasted malts with just the finest hint of charred malts. That is followed by light to moderate aromas of dark chocolate and just a hint of nuts.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of lightly roasted malts with a hint of charred malts. That is followed by a light to moderate flavor of dark chocolate and just a hint of nuttiness. Finally, there is a very light amount of earthy hops which imparts a light amount of lingering bitterness.

M: Medium to full bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Hints of dryness in the finish.

O: Pretty easy to drink with well hidden alcohol. Enjoyable but nothing out of this world or really special, though a solid every day stout.

Very good stout. Nothing particularly unique, but more of an excellent execution of the caramelized-malt / coffee stout.

Bottle poured into a glass

Appearance- very dark, a finger or two of relatively dark tan head. Little lacing.

Smell- heavy on caramel, coffee, with hints of vanilla and a few other flavors hiding behind the caramel/coffee that I couldn't directly identify, but somehow made the overall scent more rich and complex.

Taste- Similar to the smell, with the dark malt dominating. Good aftertaste of vanilla and faint notes of roasted sweet spices. The flavors hidden in the scent are more obvious on the tongue, getting some sweetness and for some reason a hint of browned butter. Pulling together nicely

Mouthfeel- Lingers without being bitter; different flavors come out between the taste and the aftertaste. A little heavy, but the caramel makes that quite enjoyable.

Overall- Very happy with this beer! Going to pick up some more once I find a reasonable price.

Bottled on 1-14-14

Pours an effervescent ebony with a thumb of caramel colored head. Above average head retention & lacing

S: Carob, raisins, & leafy hops

T: Follows the nose, a little bit of plum & cocoa also up front. Some charred grain as this warms, along with roastyness & more carob & figs, faint smokeyness too. Finishes dry, fruity & a slight charrd grain flavor

MF: Fairly thick, slight carbonation

A solid stout, drinkable enough

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 2.5

A- Pours a thin looking dark brown with a decent amount of light showing through. Not much head to speak of. I turned my head and it was gone.

S- Lots of roasted malt and nutty aroma. Poor mans Black Butte is what it seems like to me. Faint lactose and cocoa in the background.

T- An upgrade of sorts over the nose. Flavor is similar, but with a sweet note in the finish. Some licorice and toasted aggressiveness.

M- Much too thin. This is more like a weak ass porter than that of a stout. Feel is important to me in a stout, and this one is thin, watery, and pathetic.

O- I could say average, but in all honesty, it is a step below that by today's standards.
