look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.75

A: burnt brown/onyx, finger khaki up+down head,
random patchy lacing

S: dark chocolate, roasted coffee, toffee, nuts aroma
mild sniff of alcohol

T: sweet malt, cacao/dark chocolate, roasted coffee
mild bitter finish

M: med body, smooth/creamy with mild
bubbles on tongue

O: Overjoyed to revisit Deschutes and thrilled
they are now in Chicago area. This is just
an outstanding Stout. Will please Imp Stout, as well.
Would love to keep it in my regular rotation, especially for the Winter
months ahead. 1st Stout I have had in ages and
this crisp (55/Sunny Autumn is perfect pairing).

HEAVENLY; SEEK IT OUT!
