5 may seem like a high rating but my review is based off of quality per price. This is an excellent stout at only $5.99 a bottle. Flavor is excellent and easily accessible versus $20 bottles of stout.

Pours black with some light penetration. Offers a brown head that recedes to brilliant lacing showing you all your sips. Smells of coffee and a roasty maltiness beyond it's price range. The taste is smooth, roasted coffee, light hops and a little smokiness. It's not too thick, and rolling it around in your mouth it develops a creamy texture. Well done.

Pours out black. The head is dense and brown. The retention on this is ridiculous. Its not going anywhere. Lacing is great to boot. Lots of thick sticky rings around the pint glass.

Smells like plums and raisins. Getting a hint of coffee. Or course toasted malts. Smells a bit smokey as well.

Taste of dark roasted malts. Semi sweet dark fruits through the middle. Coffee is light on the taste with chocolate being more dominant. Alcohol is surprisingly toned down considering the abv but is there. Finish is mildly bitter with a lingering roasted grains flavor.

Mouthfeel is very smooth. Like drinking silk. Carbonation is soft and pleasant.
