3.7/5 rDev -2.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Bottle poured into a pint glass.
A: This is a jet black beer with a small tan head that appeared and died quickly. No lacing at all. I have had this beer several times and I also thought the head lingered quite a while longer with nice lacing, but this is much colder.
S: Roasted grains and burnt aroma. Slight fruit tones also detectable in the aroma.
T: The taste is strong on the burnt flavor and the fruit tones come quick in the forefront. Towards the end the flavor is of strongly brewed stale coffee and then some hop bitterness on the finish.
M: The mouthfeel is pretty thin and watery feeling for such a tenebrous brew. It feels just fine, but not what I was expecting.
O: This is a pretty good stout. It isn't overly complex and amazing, but it certainly isn't bad and it hits the spot. I do think the label is packing some pretty cool artwork as well.

12oz bottle served in a Prairie Teku
Thanks to Yoshi Optimator for this one.
A - Dark brown body with dense mocha head leaving specks of lacing.
S - Cold coffee, chocolate, raisins, molasses, roasted.charred caramel.
T - Nice cold roasted coffee presence, charred caramel and molasses malts, chocolate covered raisin. A strong core of dark bready malt, creamy and decadent. Finishes with strong malts, raisins, and fading coffee.
M - Full bodied, thick, creamy and viscous body, low carbonation.
Good coffee presence with a stout and creamy body. The raisin/plum plays well and adds a creative layer. Nice creamy texture, this went down very smooth.
