4.68/5 rDev +11.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Great several finger head, which itself tastes nothing short of delicious. This beer in many respects is clearly relative of the more potent 'The Abyss'.
Smell: roasted malts...some chocolate
Taste: roasted flavor is predominant....but not to the exclusion of hops. If you like the roasted taste, this brew is for you.
Mouthfeel: extremely smooth
Drinkability: A wonderful stout that makes up for the fact that The Abyss is not always available - or desired (i.e. if you are looking to 'go session').
Overall this has to be one of the best values out there; often in the sub-7 dollar range for a sixer. Quality like this at that price is one of life's small pleasures.
Serving type: bottle
