Tasted from 12oz bottle into a nonic pint glass. Cool-looking artwork and design. The stream was a dark reddish colour, but nearly black in the glass, with weak beige foam. Predictable stout aromas and flavours: toasty, roasty, strong grain bitterness, very tart to the point of acidic, very crisp, dry finish. Too-light body, too-high carbonation, thinner and less creamy and chewy than classic Irish stouts, but nonetheless a decent dark ale. Nothing extraordinary, but Iíll have no problem drinking the whole 6-pack.

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.

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.

I am a stout guy, however, I would not consider this beer an actual stout. It taste more like a porter to me. The aroma is terrific, as well as appearance, but the taste is over powered by a roasty chocolate taste, and lacks the bitterness of a true stout. I would drink it again, but probably not recommend it as one of my best when there are so many stouts out there. BUT, for the bang for the buck, you really cant beat it at $7 a sixpack.

Faint malt aroma, a two finger caramel colored head on top of black body, Mild bitter roasted malt with some sweetness, Lots of carbonation for a stout. Leaves a wet roasted malt taste afterwards. Not spectacular but Iíd drink again.

A little bitter stout, but with a decent taste. Not so impressed with it, but I will drink it again... why not?
