look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A - Nice, opaque brown-hued black body. Some nice lacing effect throughout the experience. Vigorous pour needed to get the full head potential out of it, and even then dissipated quickly.

S - Subtle notes of the roasted grain bill upfront. Definitely sense the coffee and semi-sweet chocolate aromas. Even some piney notes in there yielding a nice balance.

T - The taste is definitely growing on me. I probably tried this too cold out of the fridge. Initially it was fairly dry with only hints of a subtle bitter roasted taste. Now that I've had a few more swigs as it warms, more of the coffee and roasted dark chocolate notes are more readily available to the palate. It's still fairly dry and quick to finish. Finishes pleasantly bitter too. Balanced richness all around.

M - Medium bodied, dry with a perfect touch of carbonated mouthfeel.

O - One of the more bitter stouts I've had. I enjoyed the hopped character to this one. Surprisingly drinkable despite the complexity from all of the balanced components. I dig.
