4.38/5 rDev +19.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Clear deep brown (about a 35 SRM), three finger tan shaving cream head, very nice lacing.
Smell: Clean cocoa notes, coffee undertones, pipe smoke, wood fire, very pleasant earthiness, burnt sugar, light herbal scents.
Taste: Delicious clean roasted malt, clean coffee comes in stronger on the taste, light cocoa, earthy, slight wood smoke, caramelized sugars, light nutmeg & clove, piney hop backbone on the end. A medium body, great carb.
Final Thoughts: After having some magic hat brews in the past, I've don't think I've ever been more then "eh" with them. This is is great, but the body might be a little too heavy for the style (but I don't mind one bit.). I really lucked out for this one, it was just being put up on the shelf when I got it, and it is perfect for this deep fall very early winter time. Magic hat impressed me with this one, tons of flavor and you'll be able to drink a couple no problem. You've got to give this one a shot.

I held this one longer than I should
Appearance: Black as night, doesn't even give a ruby edge when back lit. Holds a white halo of foam and a thin cover.
Smell: Mild searthy hop, cleanly fermented malt, roasted barley, a hint of smoke.
Taste: Some stout flavors, the roasted barley in particular, a slight almost lactic milk stout sweetness, then goes very clean and balanced. Finishes with a light chalky dryness.
Mouthfeel: Medium body, slick texture, firm but moderate carbonation.
Overall: A nice sipper! Good flavor kept in check, balanced, easy to enjoy.
