4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
I had this bottle poured at a restaurant, so the total lack of head may not have been the fault of the beer. It is jet black with the slightest dirty-white lace.
The smell is amazing: a little black licorice, lots of molasses and ending with a little smoke.
Great tasting too, following the smell: molasses, mild hop bite and more molasses.
It seemed crisper than normal for its style and lots of carbonation.
Overall it is a great stout, though the mouthfeel was off-style.

Can from RobertDale, Big thanks for helping me acquire this!
Dark brown/ black color with a huge frothy tan head that persists forever. Roasty light fruit and earthy with touch of caramel and chocolate. Creamy thick body with a light level of carbonation. That’s a pretty good stout right there.

Great jet black pour with a thin tan head. Fantastic toasted bread aroma, no real hops. Flavor is on-point. Saw the beer on a craft-beer themed version of the Monopoly game and knew I had to try it. Man was I glad I did.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big 2 finger head.. darker tan with fantastic lacing.. black .. black .. black .. no light shines through even when held to a bare bulb.
Aroma is BLACK! Dark roasted ... dark chocolate.. etc.. only enough sweetness to be able to discern... cold coffee comes to mind.
Roasted barley and black malt bitterness is very present.. but not out of hand at all.... bittersweet chocolate midpalate and a nice balance of malty sweetness... though just enough to tie everything together. Good body .. medium for the style.. sorta creamy finish.. lingering chocolate... earthy hops as it warms.

Can (12 oz). Thanks to dresden for sending this Wyoming tick! Stouty black with a medium brown head and good lacing. Aroma is of roasted malts, molasses, chocolate, a bit of ashes and some toasted malts. Taste is sweet but not overly so which helps the balance a lot. Body is medium to full (surprisingly so for a less than 6% abv Foreign Stout) with moderate carbonation, a rather silky mouthfeel and a roasty + earthy finish. Good Stout!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a good black with a small beige head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of ash, licorice and intense roasted malt. Taste is of more ash and chocolate. A bit too much ash for my taste. Body is medium, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel a bit light (to my taste, anyway). Overall it was OK but I just wish the ash was a little toned down.
