look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

A - Very dark black, with very thin brown head. Head disperses quickly.

S - Chocolate, with hints of coffee and malt. Smell is nice, but not very strong.

T - Sweet at the front, chocolately taste. Quickly switches to mildly bitter at the end with coffee aftertaste. Nice balance. Alcohol taste is prominent but balanced by other flavors.

M - Very thick, creamy, and silky.

O - Very nice and balanced beer. Heavy, with a sweet smell and initial taste. The bitterness lingers for a while. Enjoyable.
