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.

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.

Pours a solid black with a short brow head and lacing. It has a nice dark malt and chocolate aroma, and a flavor that is rich malt up front with a chocolate-coffee backbone and sweet, smooth finish.
