look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Let me first say being from a burb of Pittsburgh I have no love for Philly.
The appearance is dark as night, very nice. The head is about half finger length that dissipated rather quickly with some lacing.

Smell: This beer finally has a strong smell of chocolate. I like stouts and this beer doesn't disappoint.

Taste: Right on this stout tastes of chocolate, one of the best, actually the best Ive tasted so far.

Mouth feel: Its thick but not extremely thick. The chocolate and vanilla linger on the tongue.

Overall: This is an outstanding beer. It is not a big ABV at 6.9% but the overall outstanding qualities make up for it.

Excellent three finger head. Opaque dark color. Chocolate malts and vanilla bean on the palate. Creamy and smooth. The body is a bit thin, but consistent. Nutty, malty, finish. Caramel and slight hoppieness. Great lacing down the beer. Easy to drink and satifying with a bit of late cherry tartness. Great for cool weather sipping. Yard's is a good brewery and they stack up well with the many, great Pennsylvania brewing companies.
