Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours dark brown with a slight tan head. Aroma of smooth burnt malt. Med body. Flavor is smooth burnt malt with some possible coffee hints. Not getting chocolate. It is certainly dry, but not all that bitter. Fairly tasty critter. Finally getting a little chocolate.

Not as bad as I was expecting, very much like a shitter but more robust guinness.

Bottle. Dark brown pour with tan head and a good lacing. Smells of dark chocolate and coffee and also something almost sour. Tastes of toasted malts with a dark chocolate bitter finish. Very thin for a stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I honestly do not understand the low ratings for this. Maybe it is lacking somewhat in the aroma department, and the head is a little thin, but overall a worthy competitor to other stouts, and more affordable as well. Coors should get some thanks.

Drake (8993) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - APR 9, 2013
12 ounce bottle from Kroger - Hydraulic - Charlottesville. Pours a dark reddish brown color with a large foamy brown head. Good head retention. You gotta love a wave of skunk upon opening a brown bottle. Aroma of skunk, caramel, grain, mild chocolate. The taste is chocolate, grain, hoppy finish. Thin bodied.

LKT1983 (110) - Benton, Kentucky, USA - APR 4, 2013
For the price, its pretty fair. Pour was impressive, nice head; basic cola color, decent aroma. Reminded me of a poor man’s Guinness.
