3.22/5  rDev -9.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured from bottle into tulip glass. My wife tries to avoid head (womp womp) but ended up with two fingers of fizz. On mine, though, a proper pour gives me almost nothing which quickly becomes absolutely nothing. No lacing, no cap, just a sad, miniscule ring around the rim. Color is a nice jet black, though. Very beautiful.

Smell and flavor is very subtle. Bitter chocolate, some coffee notes, not much else. Not as strong smell of flavor as most stouts. Warmth on the back end. No bad, but there's not much there.

Full mouthfeel, though. Very nice.

Not sad I tried it, but probably not going to have this one again which is disappointing. Judging by the great overall rating but lackluster recent reviews, maybe the brew has changed.

Creamy and a fair amount of chocolate. Nothing really stands out about this one in a competitive style these days

A very nice, mild chocolate stout. Not heavy...nice balance of taste.

Pours a dark black color loses its head and not much lacing. Not as smooth as some. A little bite on the back end that somehow shouldn't be there

Pleasant overall. age muted the flavor somewhat but not in a offensive way.

Poor head retention. Off taste--sour notes over power cocoa intentions. Strong sour aftertaste.

A bland, oddly flavored stout well below the class of many others. Would not buy again.
