look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

I poured from an 11.2 oz bottle into a clean pint glass.

Appearance: poured dark and thick with a two plus finger width of head however it dissipates fairly quickly, very dark red, black mostly in the glass when held to the light. No lacing to speak of.

Smell: good balance of hops and malt smells, towards the middle a more floral spice is noted.

Taste: Dark roasted notes with heavy and rich nutty malt taste. Hops are very subdued.

Mouth feel: somewhat thin compared to the look at the poor. Dark roasted caramel almost burnt.

Overall: I must say this is a great beer. The “double” makes it stout like while still retaining the caramel malt taste. I like to have this beer with a big filet and pan sauce.
