Can. Pours a black color and off white head. Roasty, creamy, malty aromas. Charred, roasty, malty flavors. A touch of residual sweetness. A touch more char/ashy flavor than I wanted, but not bad.

Yes this is pretty decent. Chocolate and roasted malt nose. Rich. Appearance is standard. Thick mouthfeel. Dry category seems wrong. Full and complex.

12oz can from SHIG. Poured a black body with a dense thick mocha colored head. Aroma of chocolate pudding skins, vanilla beans, dark toast, milk and a slight hint of metal. Flavor is the same but looses that slight himt of metal. Big rich full body with softer to average carbonation. This drinks bigger than a sub 6% beer.

Can, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out lots of roasted malt and a little cocoa. Flavour is along the same lines, with roasted malt, dry cocoa and oats. Well-balanced with a fairly robust body. Nice one.

I’ve pretty much quit drinking stouts these days -- over the summer I’ve preferred something lighter, and I’ve certainly gotten tired of chasing the next over-the-top imperial with something-or-other.But this one reminds me why I shouldn’t go too far toward giving them up. This is really nice. Very dark inky pour, nice rich deep brown head, roasty coffee nose, a bit of ash at first but that fades, hops a little metallic but not bad at all, gentle sweetness coming in late. This is really drinkable and really tasty. I wish I had another one sitting around, or any stout real, but alas. It was a single can lark.

Black. Tan head, burnt nose. Nitro, so it’s very smooth. Creamy, burnt chocolate taste. Velvety smooth. Bitter chocolate aftertaste.
