look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance
With a medium pour, this appears a super dark brown beer with a thin tan head. Decent lacing, nothing to write home to mom about.

Smell
Roasted malts + coffee beans and a faint aroma of chocolate.

Taste
Even taste of roasted malt and bitter coffee.

Mouth-feel
Medium body, a little creamy, but thin.

Overall
This is a solid, all-around stout. Nothing stands out, but nothing is lacking. There are a few others I would select before this stout. However, this brew has an advantage because it is readily available in the area.
