Can courtesy of cbkschubert. Good dry coco and coffee aromas. Black body with thin tan head. Body texture was thin and here is where these brews could of used more of a malt presence. Cooffe and choclate flavors pesent. Dry coco left on palate. Thanks Craig.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Canned. pours a dark brown black body with a thin off white head quickly thinning out to a short lacing. Aroma is sweet chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor is thin milk chocolate and lactose a bit chalky with sweet vanilla. Sweet with little roastiness. No detectable etoh or warming in the finish. A cola like mouthfeel thin with mild carbonation. not bad.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can. Pathetic excuse for a head. A thin sloppy layer of large bubbles. Dark brown in color. Thin looking. Some light roasted malts and a bit of dark chocolate in the aroma. Lifeless in the mouth. Actually the flavor is better than I expected. Lots of roasted grains, some smoke, cigarette ash and a bit of bitterness again. Finishes roasty and milky. Why do I keep buying thiese and why do they keep making them?

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Canned. Poured clear, deeper reddish-brown with a short-lived cap of tan head. The aroma picked up milk chocolate and buttery pastries upfront with oatmeal and deeper molasses notes behind.. very sweet and simpler, but pleasant enough. The flavor was also very sweet with toasted milk (and some darker) chocolates and lactose as the major contributors.. finished with non-descript roasted black patent notes and buttery sweetness. Medium-bodied and very dry on the palate with sharp carbonation.. ok flavors + ok flow = ok beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
can form beerbill. pours rather thin looking. ruby dark brown color with a huge rocky khaki head. great retention. aromas of soured milk, wood, earth, lightly roasted grains and a plastic like smell i equate to perfume/floral hops gone awry. it tastes like it smells with a dry bitter woody (think a stick not a barrel) finish. slightly acidic coffee with cream aftertaste. light bodied with slightly prickly carbonation. that plastic is really distracting in the flavor.

2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Appearance: good looking dark brown ale with medium large , creamy , tanned top.
Nose :Lightly roasted with some lactic hints , cream chocolate and cocoa, caramel with coca-cola noted. Spicy finish.
Flavor/Palate : Thin bodied , raw metallic front with strange tough biting bitterness. Center much better chocolate , mocha with roasted barley. Very strange off falvours dominate this brew. Imagine licking tin can. Flawed brew.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from the can a light black with a small head. An aroma of liquorish nearly knocked me back in my seat. It started to disipate a bit as it sat but it was always there. The taste is of a liquorish earthy cream. It was a good beer but not great as it was missing a nice hardy balance I look for ina stout.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice deep dark brown coloured body with a thin tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, nuts, milk, caramel and even a hint of glue. Medium-bodied; Nice robust malty flavour with a good potent roasty finish, all coupled with sweet tastes. Aftertaste shows some lactic qualities, with a bit of the sugars coming out. Overall, a decent stout, but a bit mild on flavours. I did, however, love the can - plus the picture on the can is great! I sampled this twelve ounce CAN purchased from K&E Discount Beverage in New Paltz, New York on 03-May-2008.

Guys, it’s a milk stout. It’s not a imperial porter, the hops are supposed to be subtle, the color is supposed to be dark dark brown and not a true black, roasted malt is apropos. If you wanted an imperial stout or a double porter, you should have bought one. I wanted this for hot summer days and I’m going to finish this 6-pack and then buy a case!

Can; poured a dark brown with a decent sized head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malt and some general sweetness. A little strange. Flavor was close too terrible; a weird roasted malt/dirt flavor. Drain pour.
