Pours dark and appealing.

Aroma subtle notes of roasted grain and chocolate.

Taste follows with roasted malt and light milk chocolate with a touch of bitter coffee and hops.

Fairly creamy mouthfeel.

L: A black pour crowned by a 1” dense light brown foam collar. S: faint roast, cocoa, chocolate. T: Rich malts balance light roast flavors supported by grainy flavors. Initial cocoa transforms into espresso with a lingering coffee bitterness. While there is a touch of char, it is not harsh and is balanced by the malt. F: Very creamy, smooth and rich with a medium full body and soft carbonation. O: A flavorful, drinkable stout.

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

Appearance: Pours fudge brown with a nice bubble show that settles into a two-fingered tan head; the retention is excellent as well as is the lacing

Smell: Roast and chocolate, with earthy/hoppy tones

Taste: Both the roasty elements from the malt and the bitter aspect of the hops come through from the outset, and the balance continues from start to finish; there is some coffee, caramel and pine in the mix, as well

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Steel Toe sends me again; It is hard to think of this as an Export Stout but I can see why others have objected to calling it an ABA; Steel Toe has chosen to dissent from being categorized by calling it a "dark ale"

Thanks, DaftPatrick, for the opportunity
