look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Look - black in color, with about half a finger's worth of tan-colored foam that dissipates slowly.
Smell - very coffee-like and roasted in the aroma's quality. Grains definitely are of the roasted barley and chocolate type.
Taste - much like the smell. The roasted coffee taste is definitely prevelant, but it's not overwhelming. It mellows out in the finish, and isn't too washed out or away in the aftertaste.
Mouthfeel - pretty well-balanced, but leans a bit on the watery side.
Overall - not a bad brew at all. Not terribly interesting or thought-provoking, but still good-tasting.

I believe I purchased this from Total Wine in McLean VA.
A really top shelf stout in appearance with a really thick, tall and creamy tan head. Retention fell off a little so that docked it a little from being a 5.
For the smell I'm picking up more coffee and burnt scents than chocolate. I'd prefer chocolate and sweet scents myself.
Taste - Well now I'm a little disappointed. Its a very thin beer, burnt flavors like the nose and a touch hoppy in the finish. I really am not tasting much chocolate at all here or anything sweet for that matter. Somewhat easy to drink though due to the watery nature of this beer.
The mouthfeel is very thin and watery. Not very thick or heavy for a stout at all.
Overall I really don't recommend this beer as aquality crafted example of the style at all. I would drink it if offered again as its not offensive in any way, but just is really lacking in many areas.
