Holy under attenuated. Super sweet. Nice hop notes after the sweetness subsides. The body is a bit weak. I can see where they are going with this. Let me know when they arrive.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: APR 18, 2013 12 oz, thanks to Phatdog1! Deep ebony with an eighth of an inch of creamy foam. Nose is semi-sweet dark chocolate, earthy toasted nut, light espresso and dry oats. Taste is the same mix of goodness, plus some caramel, tart berries and cream, and a touch of piquant green herb. Medium body has medium carbonation, is smooth and slightly oily, but finishes dry and roasty. This is what all stouts should strive for.
