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

pours a dark brown with almost zero head. nose; roasted malt, light char, baker's chocolate, & light hops. taste; chocolate/roasted malt, dry cocoa, light char, anise, light creamer, & leafy hops. medium carbonation & medium+ mouthfeel. not big, not complex, but just right for a midline stout.

Poured into my snifter

A- Dark as night with a very light caramel head on it.

S- You get a lot of roast, coca, caramel, sweet, and coffee

T- It is sweet those coca and caramel taste hit you first then you get the roast/coffee towards the end of it.

M- Very smooth, malty, and sweet

O- It's a great stout with a lot of flavors going on that work well together. It's a great winter beer.
