Aroma smells strongly of chocolate and taste is a bit bitter for a stout. I prefer the Irish red.

12oz bottle. Drank from the bottle - brown with an off white head. Roast, some earth, toasty, and caramel. Sure beats the Miller that was available at the party ...

Roasty chocolate aroma. Medium body with average carbonation. Roasty one dimensional flavor; maybe some coffee. Dark clear brown with a big khaki head. Side note: who says "little astringency" in their commercial description... I guess in that light, you could say Iím actually quite impressed with this.

12 oz bottle with BB date on neck of 28 July 2014. Killians (Coors) origin leads me to expect a competent but probably mild stout. Well, surprise ... this stout is fairly robust and has some character. A wallop of dark chocolate and hint of coffee are in the mix with a moderate amount of dark roasted malts. The aroma is alos stronger than average for style. Good balance and a fine lingering aftertaste. Feel: Semi-dry; medium body and carbonation.

Bue ŗ la pression. ArŰmes chocolat noir principalement. Mousse marron clair. Assez corpulente.

mmmbeer (1225) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 24, 2014
12 oz. bottle served in a shaker- poured a near perfect shade of black with a shade of very dark maroon when held to a light source, darkened tan colored head one finger in height formed and laced very well upon the vessel. Aroma of a malt (or extract) that was roasted, molasses cookies, and a note of bricks. Yea, bricks, go figure. Hits the mouth with a medium body, that malt tastes burnt to hell and back- and not in a good way for once, hard sugar in the middle, finish has some smoke and residual acidity. Poorly made obviously.

Not much of a taste to it definitely a dry stout but lacks the full flavor, looks good large head

Way blacker than I would have expected. Itís kind of a black hole, since no light really passes through it. The head is a tad weak but other than that not bad. The aroma surprised me: burnt cookies, raisins and plums. There is a salty soy component, hint of mineral. Stunned at the aroma so far. The taste is sweeter than the scent would indicate. There is more of that mineral-rock, but also a kind of musty malt. Not bad but doesnít quite hold up to the promise of the aroma. Feel is a combo of cigarette ashes and olive oil. A pretty decent offering by Killians, I have to say. My inclination was to crap on any Coors product but at least this put some thought into it.

Not bad considering itís coming from Killianís. It had a nice head that lasted about a minute or two and the taste with that was pretty good. After it dissolved, the rest of the beer was thin with a mild smoke flavor, with almost no bitterness or depth to it. However, it was not unpleasant and was a smooth drink.

Bottle from mom. Not bad, nothing amazing either. That being said nice notes of coffee and roasted malt. Fine.
