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

Appearance: Black, small but firm head.

Smell: Fruity, then coffee.

Taste: Nice chocolate & coffee flavors. Not much of the dark fruits that show up in the smell. A little bitterness in the finish.

Drinkability: A solid stout, I could have a few in a sitting.

A very nice stout from Deschutes here. Not too sweet and not too bitter, very well balanced. A good choice if you're looking for something a little higher octane than Guinness but don't want to go the imperial route.
