look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

a. dark brown/ black on the pour. Careful, the head sneaks up on you. Starts near nothing, but blossoms to a full 3 finger height. Head is tan/brown in color and sits on top the beer for a while at roughly 1/3" Lacing is nice.

s. Smell of yeast dominates the after poor, giving way to malt.

t. Malt, not as sweet as I had hoped, but somewhere between outstanding and very, very good. Rounded up to a 4.

m. Excellent up front, but seems to be a grit in the finish.

O. Reminds me of a Sam Adams cream stout, which is a compliment. Not as creamy, but a solid stout. Do not be scared off by the 'sweet' title.

Pours black, just about opaque. The hops and grains unexpectedly dominate the smell, though the typical chocolate stout scent is found just beneath. The semi-sweet chocolate becomes the most obvious to taste, with a grainy, bitter hops lingering in the finish. It has a very light mouth feel, with an appropriate amount of carbonation. A decent stout, however there is nothing that makes it stand out in stand out in a crowd.
