Aroma of roasted malt with a hint of spice. Pours a blackish brown with a mostly diminishing tan head. Taste follows the nose. Sweet roasted malts, spice, with wood notes and a bitter finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of nuts, toast, and hint of coffee. Medium to full body. Palate echoes the nose with flavors of toast, nuts, coffee, and a hint of chocolate. Decent length on the finish that leaves you with a pleasantly bitter coffee flavor.

Enjoyed right from the can. Taste is black licorice, brown sugar, gentle booze and grain. Solid beer from Deep Ellum. Cheers!

Sample at Kurtkeller 020: Stout-tastic 01 on 02/22/2015. The beer is a dark brown color with a medium beige head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. the aroma consists of roast malt, chocolate and a bit of hops. Medium body with flavors of roasted malt, dark chocolate and mild coffee. The finish is roast malt up front with a mild earthy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is toast with plums. Taste is sorta like a root beer, cream, caramel, toast. Thin watery brew that is very chuggable. Not much of a stout but rather more like a brown ale. Rating as stout but would give better score if the word stout was removed from lable and it was sold as a brown ale.

Pitch black body. Sweet malty, bready aroma. Taste of sweet dark fruits like dates, raisins, and plum. Strong carbonation. Medium body. Bitter aftertaste. Too short finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not seeing this as a baltic porter...or a stout. Kind of a strong brown, and a little bit of a let down. Light roast and hints of anise (if you work really hard) with a little coffee and chocolate. Not bad, but lacking the heartiness I like in BPs or stouts.

Poured a dark brown color from the can with aromas of chocolate, nuts, licorice, and some earth. Flavors match the aromas, not overly chocolaty, balanced, and solid.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich deep brown coloured body (no surprise, eh?) with a very thin, just oily layer of brown atop the beer. Aroma of alcohol, pecans, walnuts and not much else - some darker (~60% cacao) chocolate and hints of alcohol are also barely perceptible. Medium to Full-bodied; Very rich, creamy, malty and assertive brandy flavours at the forefront with a lot of sweetness from prunes, cream, cherries and caramelised malts all showing around the flavour. Aftertaste is a bit more rounded and acute with the cream and chocolate flavours the strongest, but not a light beer at all. Overall, a strong and robust sweet tout, which is exactly what this is -not a baltic or foreign by any means - just a typical sweet stout that is trying to be melded into something else. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Whip-In in Austin, Texas on 05-May-2014 for US$2,69 sampled at home in Washington on 11-August-2014.
