A fine stout for sure. Feels a little to thin and runny for in my mouth, and I will subtract from the overall score for the somewhat excessive carbonated taste. It almost makes up fort with the beautiful sticker design though.

Solid offering, just lacking that final push.

Appearance: very dark brown almost black, opaque, mild carbonation, great 1 inch thick caramel brown head that eventually thins to about 5mm in a pint glass

Smell: roasted malts, trace of nutmeg, slightly metallic

Taste: dark roasted chocolate up front, leaving a slight honey like sweetness coming mid way through, nice slight malty bitterness at end

Mouthfeel: a bit thinner than other stouts, which may not be a bad thing depending on your preference, and makes it more sessionable. crisp.

A beer I've wanted to try for ages, a bit thinner than other stouts, but this increases its appeal to me - i could definitely fit a few of these in one go. nice roasted cocoa taste is a plus as well. give it a go!

A - 3.75 - This beer is a nice dark brown-black opaque color with a thick brown head that leaves thick lacing on the glass. Very standard bottle. I like it.

S - 3.75 - It has a really enticing creaminess about the smell, I'm surprised at how much vanilla I'm getting in addition to the chocolate and roasted notes.

T - 4.25 - Really nice creamy taste with chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts as the base. Little bit of hoppy bitterness in there too. Very well balanced. This would probably be great with some age on it.

M - 4 - Nice mouthfeel that's medium-thick. Alc completely covered. Aftertaste is roasty, but also creamy, like the aftertaste from a nice cold glass of whole milk.

O - 4 - I'm really surprised in a good way by this beer. Being a big fan of imperial stouts I have a hard time finding examples with a lower ABV and gravity that are just as satisfying. This one is. It will stay in my rotation for a while.
