3.63/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours used motor oil pitch black color with a big frothy 2 finger dark tan head that faded very slowly and was full of tight bubbles, leaving very good spotty lacing.

Smells of roasted grains, chocolate, cocoa powder, malt, chicory, herbs, caramel, syrup, light coffee grinds and some burnt wood. It’s a mashed up roasted grain nose that has nice chocolate accents that smell sweet and almost like coffee.

Tastes like it smells, with roasted grains, chocolate, cocoa powder, malt, nut, toffee, chicory, molasses, caramel, coffee grinds, charcoal, very light hops, and yeast or a penny aftertaste that’s bitter; pretty much all malt with some alcohol peeking through, but not in a bad way.

Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, with mild carbonation, a thick chewy body and a sweet chocolate finish that’s bitter like a strong coffee. A slow sipper based on the weight.

A flavorful stout that is unbalanced and gets better as it warms, but it’s only above average due to the nice complex roasted malts and chocolate flavor that basically rule the taste. It was good and I enjoyed it, but I wouldn’t run out to buy it, yet I’d definitely have it again if I saw it at a bar.

3.31/5  rDev -7.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

Black in color,but some light does manage to peek through. A fingernail thin layer of khaki colored head is present and doesn't cover quite the entire top. Light notes of chocolate are all I get with the aroma. I get predominately sweet chocolate and a light,neutral hoppiness in the front of the palate. The mouth is a bit sticky and viscous. Somehow the chocolate and the hoppiness comes off a bit cloying. Sweet and slightly bitter is odd.
