3.7/5 rDev -10.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Pours pitch-black, as dark as can be, with a nice coffee-colored creamy looking foam head - looks spectacular and maintains a bit of lacing. Smell is all malt - roasted, chocolate and a bit of coffee. I can smell the alcohol in this, as well. Taste is much the same, lots of malt sweetness, and a tad bit of fruit, as well - raisin and prune. Slick and creamy.
My biggest problem with this beer is the ever presence of alcohol, particularly in terms of taste. It's a big beer at over 10% but I just don't feel like it's hidden very well. It's especially present when cold, but even as the beer warms I still get more alcohol on my palate than I'd like.
