look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pitch black color. The carbonation was pleasant with a thin head on it. Was able to get a more aggressive head on the second pour out of the bomber. Lacing stuck well to the glass making this beer a very visually appealing experience.

Smell: The alcohol was strong here. It dominated the aroma but there was also some dark exotic fruits on the undertones. Dark chocolate with a nice burnt/charred aroma.

Taste: A nice smokey taste with this stout. A subtle darkness looms throughout this beer. The alcohol plays its role and is most noticeable at the end, along with a heavy blast of hops.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is very light compared to all the other characteristics in this beer. The hops stick around on the palette for a long time. A sweet nutty malt feeling with this beer going down.

Overall: Very good. This beer was bottled almost a year ago and had a very subtle taste compared to a bottle of this beer I've had before. I've always been happy with the Lost Abbey line, never blown away but very happy.
