Poured from 1 pint can. Aroma is nice roasted coffee, chocolate and rich malts. Unfortunately, a distinct metallic smell and taste was present. It's a good solid stout with a medium body. I like the layers of toasted malts, roasted coffee and chicory. The chocolate notes are present and balanced through the long lasting finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft on tap at the brewery (New Orleans, LA). Pours a deep blackish brown hue, a darker body, some ruby brown glow with frothy tannish head atop with decent stick around and lacing. Mellow ringer does some damage. Aromas are cocoa and chocolate syrup, caramel and decent roast. Some toastiness, caramel, earth and more sweeter chocolate. Initial is a bit thinner with distinct chocolate syrup element. Some oatmeal, roast and coffee give some hits. Baked and roasty oats, caramel and toffee. A bit of creaminess as we hit the middle, dry and thinner with that distinct chocolate syrup type feel that sets the pace. A bit creamy, some sweetness, toast and carmelization. A bit sweet, gentle bitterness as we taper out. Some more cocoa, some dryness, earth. Sweeter slant overall, the chocolate syrup feel really does the leading here. Not necessarily for me, a bit sweet but my wife really dug it. Potent nose, good look.

Can from trade as an extra. Forget who. Thanks! Pours dark brown to black with a big mocha colored creamy head. Nice aroma of roasted malts, smoke, bittersweet chocolate. Flavor is metallic up front big time, followed by roasted malt, bitter cocoa powder, maybe a hint of coffee or espresso. A long finish with some pleasant roast lingering with chocolate on the palate. Light to medium bodied for a stout, high carbonation. The big metallic flavor to start this one off really takes away from it, as it is an otherwise very solid dry stout with lots of flavor going on.

On tap at the Brewery -- Nice super creamy stout. Light enough that the 6.8%abv was surprising, also let the subtle roast and chocolate come through.
