4.38/5 rDev +4%
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.

Had on nitro at Draught House on 4/7/14
A-Pours black with a medium sized bubbly tan head. Excellent lacing!
S-The aroma is big on espresso with a healthy balance of chocolate. Roasted malts and licorice are present as well.
T-The taste has some sweetness in it to go along with some bitterness. Flavors of espresso and to a lesser extant chocolate remain strong. Long aftertaste of espresso.
M-Medium bodied, with a thicker texture, with softer carbonation.
O-This one doesn’t do anything to crazy. Its just very solid.

Draft nitro into 5 oz sampler. Appearance is impenetrable black, beautiful rising head resembling a cappuccino. Aroma is dark roasted malt, coffee, subtle hops. Flavor is dark roasted malt, coffee, caramel, followed by bitter hops. Mouth feel is medium full, not font or bubbly (the nitro, I guess). Overall this is a really outstanding stout, noticeably richer in flavor than the bottled equivalent I have at home right now. Love it!
