look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

it pours a seared brown that appears black and seems to eat light. A finger of brownish tan head sinks to a fine mesh of froth. Rivets of lacing pop along the inside of the glass.

The aroma is initially dark roasted malt, sweet with burnt sugar and molasses. Coffee, nuts, and charred biscuit join spiced toffee and a distant but distinct flare of alcohol.

Upon tasting, there comes the bittersweet sugary char of roasted malt layered with biscuit, nuts, molasses, dark chocolate, and a touch of soy. Coffee and a muted hoppiness bring a crisp character alongside a casual current of warm alcohol. Baked dough, burnt sugar, and a poignant residual bitterness feed a very crisp, dry, and lingering finish. It's basic and very enjoyable.

Medium bodied, it starts creamy but seems to drop off rather quickly, but only after making a positive impression.

Sometimes a stout is just a stout, and when it's this tasty, just being a stout is a good thing. It's got all the right parts put together in a fetching way. It's bold but mannered. The ABV is north of average, but even with that, it drinks smooth and well. It's not double imperial, cave-aged in Amontillado casks with vanilla and premium espresso tossed in. No, instead, it's a good, gracious, enjoyable stout that I'll pour gladly any day.
