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

Poured this into a tulip, though I think it might have been better in a pint glass. Winter 10-11 release. **Updates are Winter 11-12 in a pint glass, makes a difference.

Appearance: I will say very few beers are black, as you can usually see some color in the light, but this is black. Small brownish head, no lacing. **Updated, there is some lacing, not too much though

Smell: Coffee, roasty malt, with a hint of sweetness. **Update, good sweetness to it

Taste: Roasty malt, hints of coffee and dark chocolate, little bit of bitterness. **Update, this has respectable sweetness with balancing bitterness, this has a nice mocha flavor

Mouthfeel: somewhat thick, crisp carbonation

Drinkability: Easy drinking, doesn't taste like 10% abv.

Overall very good, but not as good as I remember it being. Probably will let the others age some and see if that makes a difference. And, good stout for the price. **Update, the flavor is great, as good as I remember, I'm putting three bottles in the cellar to see what age does to it.

Serving type: bottle
