From a can. Pours almost black with a creamy beige head. Tastes creamy, like chocolate, apple, alcohol, tobacco. Strong and very good. Extremely smooth. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like chocolate, licorice, and cool dark fruits.

This is a glorious stout. Near flawless execution. Coffee and chocolate mix with sweet caramel notes and just the right amount of bitterness. Had a pint at the brewery tasting room.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours pure black with a thick dark brown head. Aroma is dark chocolate, roasty malts, and vanilla. The taste is initially sweet and rich followed by roasted coffee and good dark chocolate. The finish is bitter and long. Initially there was a metallic taste in the finish but thankfully it went away after a couple minutes of sitting out. Excellent strong bitter stout.

Chocolate and roasted malts aroma. Intense! This smells like one big beer, even though it came in a can. A faint pine-y scent in the aroma pushes this one over to the top.
Pitch black when poured from the can, even when held up to the light. Dark brown head, slowly dissipates to a thin,bubbly layer
Chocolate comes through first and is followed up by massive malts and some coffee. Incredibly balanced.
Pours, and feels, as thick as oil. Wonderful.
found a can as part of a 10% off mix a six, and this is one of the best stouts I have ever had. Will definitely buy and drink again.

Absolutely phenomenal. If youíre tired of bitter, coffee leaning imp. stouts, this is for you. The emphasis is overwhelmingly chocolate, but never feels too sweet. The balance of bitter and sweet is so well crafted you wonder why most stouts donít taste like this. If you ever get a chance to try this, do not pass up the opportunity, A standout from the crowd, yet incredibly familiar and comforting.
