look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours completely opaque; black. 1 finger light-brown frothy head that dissipates quickly; only a ring of froth remains once settled in glass.

S: Dark chocolate and molasses. Hint of licorice. Musty.

T: Quite a bit of malty dark chocolate.

M: Creamy, but not too thick. Light bitter sensation in the throat; lingering on the tongue.

O: Typical. Nothing sensational, but definitely a stout worth drinking. I think I'd enjoy this more with a meal than by itself...like a nice juicy burger =]~
