3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a near-black brown with thin creamy-tan head with decent retention and some lace. Aroma is sweet, notes of licorice. Taste is... disappointing. Watery bready malt with some chocolate - more like a porter - and surprisingly present hops (that bit no altogether bad, but puzzling). Slightly sour, notes of dark fruit. Thin body, medium carbonation. If this had been marketed as a porter, I think I wouldn’t have been so disappointed & confused.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2016 Dark with too much foam. Very little flavor of interest. I expect better from CC.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
There's nothing wrong with this beer, it's just spectacularly unspectacular. Thin on the body and lacking flavour for a stout.

Can - Roasted malts. Jet black thin white head. Roasted malts with a touch of bittersweet chocolate. A basic but decent stout, very sessionable if not interesting.

Pretty typical dry stout. Dark, white head, even has the texture of a Guinness. Nothing too interesting, but an okay beer.
