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

Appearance: Pours a very dark brown, almost black, with a short brown head that dissipates quickly leaving some lacing

Smell: Coffee, chocolate, caramel, roasted malts

Taste: Caramel, chocolate, coffee, with a bitter hoppy finish. Very roasty malts

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body, medium carbonation, not as heavy as some full bodied stouts out there.

Overall: An excellent brew, probably one of the best examples of this style. The gold standard. My favorite brew from GLBC. Worth going out of my way for.
