look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: deep brown almost black. a very small tan head that doesn't fade one bit and leaves a sticky lacing. dark and opaque.

Smell: chocolate, oatmeal, and some other sweet malts

Taste: lots of chocolate and some chocolate covered oatmeal. a very light but sweet burnt, presumably from dark crystal malts

Mouthfeel: pretty light but slightly over sweet.

Overall: a very sweet and rich stout. a little two rich for my blood. I do like sweeter beers but they are usually stronger than this. perhaps of roasty malts would balance this out nicely.

Appearance is dark and thin.

Smells like chocolate and booze.

Taste is just not there. I'm thinking an imperial or barrel aged version would be awesome, but this just isn't there. Not enough booze to go with the sweet.

Mouthfeel is a bit dull and lacking. Tastes like a melted chocolate bar with no booze bite.

Overall this beer did little to impress me. This beer could have been so much more.
