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

Appearance: Pours pitch black with just a hint of fudge around the edge; a modest tan head fritters away rather quickly; spotty lacing

Smell: Smells of nog but not egg and by that I mean that the spices are there - nutmeg, cinnamon, etc., but it doesn't waft egg nog; underneath, there are roast and coffee tones

Taste: The spices jut forward and what I missed in the aroma appears in the tastebuds - the egg nog; underneath, the roasty stout flavors build; after the swallow, the chocolate takes over and there is some burnt coffee in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: An interesting gimmick beer that I thought I would enjoy more than I did; the egg nog and stout elements tended to clash more than I hoped they would

Thanks, justanewby, for the opportunity
