4.05/5  rDev -1.2%

Appearance: Arrives fudge colored with ruby highlights; a few splashes of lace remain

Smell: Chocolate and roasty tones

Taste: Chocolate and roasty tones on the front end of the palate with some hops in the middle to cut the sweetness somewhat; boozy in the finish with a chocolate and coffee character

Mouthfeel: Thick and luscious, with moderate carbonation; very creamy mouthfeel

Overall: Rich and fudgy with a great mouthfeel; a bit more of a dark fruit complexity is necessary for this beer to score higher from my perspective

For context, I prefer my stouts to be rather smooth. This stout has a bite that I find somewhat unpleasant. The bite hits me immediately then transforms to a more pleasant roasted flavor, leading to a pretty clean finish.

Pours an effervescent ebony with a pinky of mocha colored head, Nice viscous look, above average head retention & lacing

S: Vanilla, dark fruit & chocolate

T: Follows the nose, dryness & charred grain up front, & a little black currant up front. Dryness, carob, molasses, a little woodyness & charred grain as this warms. Finishes with dark fruit, carob, & dryness, faint licorice notes as well

MF: Chewy, slight carbonation, slight boozey warmth

A solid RIS, well worth a go
