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 (597) - 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 (4062) - 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.

tap - Pours very dark brown with a small tan head. It has a roasted malt aroma with chocolate notes. The flavor is of dark roasted malt and not much else. Itís very bubbly, medium bodied, and overall fairly good which I suppose is better than expected.
