look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A – Looks the way that every stout should look. Very, very dark. Shinning a light through it makes it look like a very dark shade of red. A cream colored head that never really goes away. With every sip the tiny bubbles seem to bring it back to life. If a beer could look sexy, I would say this is a 10 out of 10.

S – Has the aroma of coffee and chocolate with a hint of hops.

T – Tastes pleasantly bitter, like a coffee. Probably comes from the dark roasted grains used. It has a subtle malty sweetness and pine-like hoppy bitterness as well. For the amount of alcohol in this beer it is hidden quite well behind loads of flavor. This is a beer for someone who likes to taste their beer.

M – Feels a little heavy on the palate for a 6.4% abv, I was expecting it to be drier. The carbonation is perfect for a stout. The bubbles are tiny and make the beer go down smoothly

O – This is the best stout that money can buy. At something like $7 for a 6-pack it probably will become one of my go to stouts.
