Bubbly in an unpleasant, almost gritty, way. Smokey bitterness ruins the flavor. The only positive thing I can say is it was cheap - $5.99 at Meijerís.

Really enjoyed this, more chocolaty with a lesser coffee flavor than most Austin or Colorado stouts, and comparatively little or no bitterness. Overall sweet toasty malt, good palate and overall flavor. Good price point.

SDalkoholic (2274) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Bottle from 7-11: Poured a dark black liquid with a creamy layer of foam head. Nose is delicate with minor scents of roast coffee and melted chocolate like malts but then there is scent of sour yeast that lurks in the background. The drink has a decent roastiness about it but then there is also a lactic sour milk taste as well which Iím not sure what to think about. Good price for a sixer so no serious complaints about this.

Better then you would expect. Has all the qualities of a dry stout that you should come to expect.

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Bottle. Better than I expected from Coors. Black pour with thick beige head. Light aroma, cocoa, coffee. Flavour isnít malty enough, but still not bad with the chocolate and coffee. All over the tongue flavour with a good malty finish.

Thisis12ptfont (1018) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Light aroma of cocoa nibs. Black appearance. Carbonated chocolate and roasted caramel. Overall, very simple, not much to it.

Pailhead (6017) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle: The aroma consists of chocolate, caramel, burnt notes, roast, and light coffee. It pours a dark brown with some orange highlights and a one finger tan head. There is some thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with chocolate, caramel, and faint fruit. The finish has some burnt notes, roast, and light coffee. Itís medium bodied with somewhat lively carbonation. Overall, itís not world class, but itís much better than I anticipated.

Beerman6686 (5619) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2013
This one poured a medium brown color with a beige head. Aroma was of light roast, caramle, and some earthy notes. Flavor was similar, a bit sweeter and roasted than I was expecting from a dry stou, but overall a pretty solid killians offering.

Very drinkable. A good stout (great for the price), though not as heavy as I normally like a stout to be.
