Very cool, sweet and not tiring as other strong stouts. The can is a jewell considering the label is crazy.

12 oz can. How can you not love a brewery that has a Porkslap as a label? Well... it would help if they didn’t use a can, and if they made decent brews. The stout is very average, maybe a bit below average. The head is thin and vanishes quickly, and while it has all the typical stout flavors, they don’t blend well. It’s stout in a can. ’Nuff said.

Can from New Beer Distributors.
Smooth and grainy stout. Soot.
Light and easy drinking, nothing remarkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Pours deep brown with a beige head. Roasted aroma with a bit of burnt wood. The flavor is both roasted and sweet, with a light smoky finish (but not a good smoky). Not bad.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
(can - 12 oz) Black pour with a mound of foam that disappears quickly. Aroma is malty and roasty with some burnt malts and an odd aroma of wood chips from the bottom of an animal cage. Flavor is watery and metallic at the start with a very light hint of roasted malts in the middle and a watery and burnt finish. This just isn’t good at all.

12oz can. Pours dark brown in color with brown foamy head. Aroma sweet, malty and some odd aroma. Taste watery, coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate and some odd taste with dry finish. Did I mention an odd nose and taste, this is a drain pour!!!!!!!

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Ugh...terrible sweet stout. Terrible beer actually. Aroma was hardly anything with just a slight hijnt roasted malt. Pour was a flat near black with just a slight thin tan film for a head. Taste was very flat and thin. A bitter roasted malt hits the sides of the tongue quickly then all flavor eixts and itters the throat. No carbonation. Blah

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
From a 12 fl. oz. can. Pours really dark and almost black. Very little head. Strange aroma of chocolate, coffee grinds, and raisins. In a way it is rather off-putting. Actually, I haven’t experienced an aroma quite like it. Heavy mouth feel. Smoked chocolate malts and coffee flavor and finishes on the dry side. It leaves an aftertaste. A lot of folks are more impressed with this one that I am.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. can - Pours a dark brown color with a small light tan head. Faint lacing. Aroma and flavor is chocolate and coffee. Light to medium body. Leaves the palate dry. Not bad for a canned stout.
