A - 3.5 - Black with a moderate tan head
S - 3.75 - Chocolate, but almost subordinate to some kind of baked good, blending into roasty. Also something metallic.
T - 3.75 - Not particularly sweet, surprisingly. Cacao nibs. Ends with something coppery and bittersweet chocolate. I'd like for it to be more complex.
M - 3.75 - Thinner than expected and thinner than it looks when pouring. Short of medium bodied.
O - 3.75 - This is a mature stout in the sense that it doesn't try to be sweet and syrupy and isn't afraid to be bitter in that darkest chocolate sort of way. I think it could actually use a bit more body and silkiness. The thinness combined with the metallic note give me something I don't quite want, which distracts from an otherwise interesting beer.
