Poured from a can. I don't know how old it is. Black pour with no head. Muted aroma of roasted malt and some chocolate. Thin mouthfeel, watery. No real taste to speak of up front. Slight "stouty" after taste. This beer was not very good. Maybe, I had an old can and it did not hold up because of the low ABV.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 oz can: Aroma is malt forward coffee, chocolate, and a bit of roasted nuttiness. Appearance is a opaque black with a thick tan head that linger for quite a while. Taste is very creamy and milky like a chocolate milkshake, sweet, and a malt roastiness on the backend. Palate is milk and sweet on the tongue and an aftertaste of light roasted malt. Overall, Really drinkable and really nicely drinkable. Cheers!

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour from a 16 oz can. Deep black brew - held up to a light you can see that it is clear. Tan head that soon fades. Low carbonation. Aroma of sweet roasted malt, a little chocolate, Taste is sweet with roasted grain and hints of chocolate. Clean finsih with a little bitter and the burnt grain flavor coming forward. Rather thin palate that works in this case. Very good!

Pours a deep brown with thick tan head and light lacing. Aroma of caramel, condensed milk, chocolate, roasted malt, and moist dates. Flavor matches well and makes for a pretty enjoyable brew.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2014 Sweeter and frothier than most stouts. Flavors of sweet cream, toast and mild coffee with light caramel and moderate bitterness. A bit lighter than expected but easy to drink.

On tap. Pours near black with a brown head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has roasted malts with some lactose sweetness and a hint of chocolate. Flavor is similar with chocolate and roasted malt with lactose coming out in the finish.

not much in the way of aroma,flavor is lactic and chocolate.has a pleasant creamy mouthfeel.the basics are here for this beer.needs a little improvement on aroma and perhaps a little bitterness in the finish.its average right now but has potential with tweaking.

Mich Brewers Guild sample. Pours black with no head. Smell of chocolate. Taste is light chocolate flavor, but mouthfeel seems a bit thin. Slight bitterness. Only okay.

For all those people that rank the aroma low, I offer these kind words: "it smells better than a hooker’s chocolate starfish at the end of her shift."
