Appearance:  An opaque rich dark brown with a two finger head.  Resembles a freshly poured cup of coffee sans steam.

Smell: Malty aromas with caramel and slight hints of chocolate.

Taste: Quick to come and quick to go.  Burnt chocolate and bitter coffee.  Woody characteristics with a definite smokey quality.  The chocolate lingers in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: A light/medium density with low alcohol burn.

Overall: A pretty good beer but just an okay stout.  It is a bit thinner and weak on flavor than I would desire in my stouts.

Grade: B
