look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 5

Appearance: A dark stout with a nice tan head. Small bubbles. The head doesn't last forever but there is some lacing.

Smell: Sweet fruits are upfront in the nose. Burnt caramel notes with a smokey finish.

Taste: Heavy roasted/smokey flavor. Figs and other dark fruits. Hops add a light spice to the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium mouthfeel is okay. I like a thicker stout.

Drinkability: This could easily be a session beer. It was for me on my last brew session.

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

Appearance: Pours a coal black color with an espresso cap that lasts forever and leaves plenty of lacing

Smell: Wonderful dark roasted malt aroma redolent of dark chocolate, coffee and burnt sugar

Taste: Starts out with a roasted flavor that becomes increasingly assertive with chocolate notes after the swallow; the finish reeks of chocolate and charcoal

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation; thins out a bit on the finish

Drinkability: There is a lot to like with this flavorful concoction; the awards are well-deserved

Thanks, ThomasHardy, for the opportunity and to douglas88, for the chance to revisit
