UPDATED: AUG 13, 2012 This is a very dark beer that pours almost black. It has a very strong flavor and leaves a very mild hoppy taste on your palate. Overall, it is a very good beer. I recommend it!.

Poors perfectly. The head on this stout isn’t too frothy, and not too thin. Very rich chocolatey taste and super sweet. Very delicious desert beer.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bottle, San Diego. Delicious aroma of chocolate, coffee, malt, with an overlay of hoppiness. The head is creamy, though not like a Guinness. A dark schwarzbier. Pretty bitter, with some coffee and chocolate notes. Not too thick or oily, medium bodied beer. A good beer worth trying.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
From the bomber it pours a deep dark opaque brown with an initial two finger tan head which quickly turns into a nice ring. Chocolate, coffee and perhaps some dark fruit fills the nose. There is a strong taste of roasted malts with a loads of chocolate notes. There is also a hint of sweetness present. A long lasting roasted/burnt aftertaste is also present. Not overly hoppy as an title "American Stout " might imply.The mouthfeel is full and thick! A nice American stout.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Commercial description hits this one on the head. Black with a nice foamy tan head. Predominantly roasted and burnt malt character in the aroma. Some earthy hop notes but malt is huge. Flavor is toasted, black, and ashy. Not sticky, but a good body and dry, bitter finish. Like this one.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer pours a dark brown to black color with a tan head. The aroma is full of chocolate and heavily roasted malt, with a little bit of cream thrown in. The flavor is similar. There is a lot of roasted malt and a hint of smoke, along with a ton of chocolate. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A nice, straightforward stout that is easy to drink.
