3.5/5  rDev -7.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: A muddy medium brown with a substantial white head that leaves layers of lacing on the glass. Not the prettiest of beers, but just fine for the style.

Smell: Light, well-balanced aroma of powdered cocoa, coffee and cream, and roasted malt.

Taste: Similar to the bouquet, although the chocolate flavor goes from powdery to milky. A bit of a sour aftertaste is present. Bitterness is medium from the roasted malt.

Mouthfeel: Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation is fine for the style.

Overall: A decent stout, but hardly spectacular. The sour aspect is of concern. Perfectly drinkable, but wouldn't recommend.

Very dark brown, almost black, not quite, a little reddish hue to it almost looks nice, cask, so no head etc. . . solid roast aromas, reminiscient of HUB's 7 grain on cask.

Light on the chocolate and coffee, both in the aroma and taste. Decent viscosity leading to chewiness. Alcohol tame. Relatively easy to drink and plenty enjoyable. Probably couldn't pick this out of a blind test with obsidian stout when they are both on tap.

Was pretty happy to see a limited edition stout on cask at the Portland brewpub. 6.5% ABV, 53 IBUs.

Appearance: Rapture Stout comes out very dark with dark brown and ruby hints around the edges. Head is a light tan color, and has okay lacing, but reduces down to nothing.

Smell: Dark malts, light roast, lots of coffee and chocolate. Lighter hop character as well.

Taste: Lightly roasted malts and lots of coffee up front. Hints of milk chocolate and bitter chocolate as well. Light on the hops but they are still there. Very solid and tasty.

Mouthfeel/Overall: This beer is medium bodied with light carbonation and very smooth. It's been a while since I've had a good regular American stout. I was pretty impressed with this beer. Good flavors and very enjoyable. Would definitely have again.
