look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

bottle from 2013

A: pours black with a finger of dense tan head from a vigorous pour that fades to a small pool and collar around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing
S: smell is heavily chocolate with some roast malt and a hint of coffee
T: taste is chocolate, roast malt, more chocolate, a hint of coffee and still more chocolate. Swallow is bitter dark chocolate and bitter roast malt with a tinge of coffee on the back end
M: I wouldn't call this a full mouthfeel as it feels a bit on the watery side. carbonation is soft but there and the finish is a little dry
O: Not bad but not great. there are better beers out there for the same price. Based on the way it poured I thought it would have a little more going on and drink a lot bigger.
