black, with very little tan head, has a very light plastic chocolate and weak coffee thing goin on in the aroma, and some wet grass/ Check that, it smells much like a pot of brewing coffee, like cheap ass instant coffee.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours black w/ a tight off-white head. Notes of caramel and chocolate in the nose. Soft thin body w/ very little CO2. Flavors are bland and are enwrapped with diacetyl. I ended up using the rest of the sixer for baking bread. Worked pretty well for that.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark reddish brown. Milky, latte aroma. All the regular players are here for a stout - chocolate, coffee, burnt toast. Rich and tasty. Later on a slightly smoky aroma emerges. The body is kind of thinnish, which actually seems to add to the appeal.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours pitch black with a medium dark tan head. Starts off with a moderate aroma of roasted chocolate malt. The flavor is coffee with a touch of chocolate. The finish is salty and tastes like an Alka Seltzer. Not very good. Very disappointed in this one.

Nice large head poured into my glass. A nice mixture of coffee and chocolate in the flavor. A very decent stout and a Guiness want to be

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Extremely dark brown (maybe black) with a small, sickly tan head. The aroma was very roasty and smokey...a lot of coffee and some cocoa. The flavor was full of coffee tones with a definite lactic sourness lurky in there. The feel was way too thin and watery...pretty much killed the experience.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a thick robust black with a thin tan head. Aroma is lightly burnt and kinda reminds me of mixed vegetables. Body is thin but has a nice mellow sweetness to it and is quite drinkable. Finishes faintly sweet with a lingering roasted coffee bean flavor. This could use a little more body and a nicer aroma, but pretty good for what I would consider a session stout. Thanks to whaleman for this one!
