look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

(purchased at NoLibs Foodery(?), chilled - bottle code SS.12.04 - poured into a balloon)

A: impenetrably dark brown liquid... compact foam forms, about a finger width high, then dies down, leaving a spongy-bubbly collar but no lace

S: coffee and creme, the chocolate coating for a Ho-Ho, faint smoky ash, hint of black candy licorice, hint of lactic funk... later, it takes on a wet lawn and soil note, with a drop of chocolate-coated hard caramel candy underneath... the combo of ash and acids seem to dominate, with sub-medium intensity

T: it's held up pretty decent... dark cacao and roasted barley tea up front... light-moderately tart and acidic up front as well, leaving a mellow bitter bite in the finish... not much sweetness like sugar, maybe a thin thread of it left... mildly roasty and pretty dry... hints of turning

M: sub-medium viscosity up front... attenuates out somewhat thin and flat in the finish... a little residual roast matter left, mild scraping, but, again, pretty dry

O: decent for a dry stout... can't endorse it for a sweet stout, though Kiuchi has some fringe approaches to their products... it certainly did hold up alright after 2 years, maybe not so surprising
