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

A - Pours very dark as expected. Small tan head which settles rather quickly.

S - Very nice! Malty and a bit chocolaty. Not overly complex.

T - More complex than the smell, there is a bit of faint sweetness which almost has a cherry like quality that fades into a more bitter coffee like flavor. Not bad.

M - Nothing special. Lighter and less of a creamy feel than normal Guinness Dry Stout.

O - I think it's a bit better than the average stout, but it's nothing to go searching hard for either.
