look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a dark brown with ruby highlights around the edges. At first a khaki head rises to over two fingers. Not much lace is left as the foam gently recedes to a ring.
S: Roasted malts, but not overwhelming in that regard. Caramel sweetness and some dry chocolate powder in the finish.
T: Roasted malts up front. Which quickly turns to a caramel sweetness. In the middle, a bit of dry powdered chocolate, which eventually finishes with more caramel sweetness.
M/D: A moderate body and carbonation. Not to heavy for a stout, but still wishing for a bit more umpth. Very smooth, as per the style. Though I enjoy the easy drinking nature here.

Maybe just a tad to sweet in the finish. Though I should not take off to much for that cause many I have had in the style are fairly sweet. A slightly fuller body would not be a bad thing either. Again, not a detriment, overall very enjoyable and will put the six pack to good use.
