3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
It poured a dark black in my pint glass. A small one centimeter off white head appeared and lasted for a good minute. The body was too dark for any carbonation to be seen. There was barely any lacing. The smell had chocolate and roasty coffee up front with just a tad of hops in the background. The taste was basically the same. The palate was about a light to medium, slightly watery. Overall, this was a decent stout that I would have again.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
No canning information.
Appearance: Black body throughout with a creamy brown head, average retention but dissolves into a light coating with a thick creamy ring.
Aroma: Sweet cocoa with roasted malts are strong on the first smell, but a light smoky aroma appears giving a light smoked meats aroma. Great aroma.
Taste: The taste isn’t as strong as the flavor but roasted malts come in on the mid-taste after a bland intro, which then hints at cocoa and a light smoky flavor on the finish. This has a nice amount of flavor, especially for the ABV and has nice complexity. I really enjoy this.
Palate: Light to medium bodied, with medium amounts of carbonation.
Overall: This is a hell of a value and it really surprised me. I will be buying a case of this for the rest of winter as my go-to. I highly recommend this and I would love to try this with some smoked ribs or a hamburger.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Near black with a thin tan head. Coffee, earthy hops, and burnt sugar. Flavor is lightly sour, but mostly medium bitter. The body is light and foamy. One of the less enjoyable stouts i’ve tried.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: very dark brown, with a short (and shy) milk chocolate head. Aroma: nice nose, lots of chocolate, coffee, vanilla and cream. Taste: sharp, almost mineral notes of bitter chocolate, a bit of coffee beans, and talc. Finish: bitter, slightly astringent, like perrier. Notes: Disappointed. I really liked the can design. Palate was actually really nice, as was the aroma. But the flavors were weak at best, and rather off-putting at worst. This was neither sweet nor particularly stout-y.
