4.35/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle acquired in a trade with user azurescens. thanks! drank from my stone IRS snifter.

A- the pour yields an opaque black body with a small bit tight khaki colored head on top. the head lasts for a while before falling and leaves behind small rings of lacing. very nice.

S- the first thing i pick out of the nose are roasted malts. after that i get a bunch of dark chocolate and a lesser amount of milk chocolate. espresso/dark roasted coffee at the end. not the most complex nose, but a really solid one.

T- the taste starts out with more of the dark roasted malts that i could smell. after that i get the blast of dark chocolate. the milk chocolate follows and adds a small level of sweetness. rich and dark roasted coffee moves in towards the end, along with some earthy hops. very well done.

M- the body is on the upper edge of medium. the carbonation is spot on. lingering aftertaste and bitterness. leaves my mouth feeling dry.

O- this is an excellent example of the american stout. this is one that i would buy often if it were available to me. something to check out for anyone that loves stouts.

Hints of coffee, beautiful color, smooth and creamy. Just delightful! I love the thickness, and the mouthfeel of this stout. I very much enjoyed the creaminess and the full bodied taste. This beer is highly rated for a reason, it is fantastic. Try it if you get a chance!
