look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Poured into pokal. Jet black with a thin brown head that fades quickly, leaving incredibly fine lacing. Smell is coffee and roasted malts. Taste is huge; coffee, chocolate, roasted everything, all over the tongue. Delicious bittersweet chocolate aftertaste. Alcohol not noticeable for how much it is; mouthfeel full and creamy. Awesome stout!
