This is the best stout I have ever had. Not overly chocolately and is nicely bitter. Has a little smokey flavor to it. Really refreshing.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Black pour with just a bit of dark brown cola-colored head. Vanilla cola/amaretto scent. Average to low carbonation, watery somewhat creamy mouthfeel, clean finish. Sweet chocolate-y taste with some woodsy smokiness, malt ball character too. Decent but not overwhelming, somewhat lacking in complexity. A lot better options are out there.

Can via state line..dark black pour..slight tan head..American stout in a can..cool concept..aroma is chocolate dominated..really surprised by the light mouthfeel on this..taste is on par with aroma with perhaps traces of figs as well.has milk stout qualities along with other stout families as well..vanilla does leave its mark on end with some more sweetness but not overpowering..light bodied..goes down smooth...nice to try and would be a good brunch offering for sure..

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Serving: 16 oz. can from State Line Liquors. It pours black with a lasting dark tan head. The nose has pleasant notes of roasted malt and milk chocolate. The flavor mirrors the nose with slight burnt notes, roasted malt, tasty milk chocolate, and a hint of vanilla. Light to medium body kept it pretty drinkable as well. A very solid stout that’s worth trying.

Flavors of roasted chocolate, light coffee, cream and vanilla. Hints of toast. Slightly sour finish but not in a bad way. Very easy to drink stout.

Lots of tones in the flavor. Bold with subtle touches of chocolate and hops. Great for fans of stouts and porters
