look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured an opaque black (with slight chocolate hue in the light). Minimal head. Bitter aromas, roasted malt, bitter coffee, some light chocolate, and a hint of molasses. Tasted of coffee, roasted malt... balanced bitterness... tasted bigger than 6%. Medium mouthfeel, perfect for a regular stout (I prefer them a little meatier). Overall outstanding.
