Pour is a black with a small tan head. Aroma is a minor roasted malt and maybe some licorice. Flavor is again a very minor roast with a touch of chocolate and coffee. All things are very weak and watery though. Smooth and easy to drink but much too bland.

demitriustown (1067) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - NOV 22, 2013
12 oz bottle: Aroma is got some decent chocolate malt notes with light nuttiness and caramel notes. Appearance is a dark black with a thick tan head that linger for quite a while. Taste is got some decent malt notes with chocolate and a light caramel note intertwined. Palate has got a medium mouthfeel with an after taste of malt backing. Overall, Decent stout nothing special, but nothing too horrid. Cheers!

BOSSbrewer (1635) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 19, 2013
This was better than I anticipated. Pours black. Coffee and roast on the nose. Lots of fluffy creamy head that persisted. Lots of chocolate and roasty flavors. Very nice beer.

Sometimes you when you are at the grocery store - Food City, not some fancy, high-end store - you decide to get a mix six and see if you can pick up something you havenít rated. Sometimes you get something surprisingly good. Sometimes you get something memorably awful. Most times you get average.

~Pleasant cocoa and coffee aroma with light breadiness. ~Pours pitch black with small creamy brownish white head. ~Light roasty malt flavor with coffee and dark chocolate. ~medium bodied, medium low CO2, lasting roasty finish. ~Much better than expected. Quite a nice stout. Would gladly drink this again.

ARMed (602) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Surprisingly nice finish with a strong palate and a hoppy chocolate finish. Beer has a good deep black color with little to no opaqueness. Lacing is good but not great. Head is a nice foamy white head that quickly dissipates. Overall not a bad beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aurelius (4175) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Great label, twistoff lid on fairly standard longneck. Dark, almost opaque beer. This was really pretty good for a mass market beer. Lightly sweet, buffered roast. Mouthy. Lightly clingy roast aftertaste. A great beer for the price. Trade with PorterPounder. Great Indian Summer afternoon.
