I use this beer to judge others. There is such complexity in taste, dark consistent color and a head that is almost mousse like.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Auburn Hills, 12 oz, 9.1% a/v
Pours a dark thick black with a nice brown head. Velvety thickness, looks great. Aroma of espresso, dark chocolate, a bit of dark fruit and some fruity hoppiness. Taste is rich, chocolatey and espresso, you can taste the alcohol but it doesnt knock you away. A bit harsh on the palate due to the alcohol but otherwise a rich and complex aftertaste which lingers. I think if they made this an oatmeal stout, it would be approaching perfection. As is, a bit harsh to be calle perfect

Aroma: Strong smell of roasted malts.
Appearance: As dark as they come with nice amber carbonation remaining on the top.
Taste: Smoky that subtle at first but develops and lingers into a much more complex taste.
Palate: Smooth with not a lot of carbonation once it hits your tongue.
