Cans can be good for beer, but they don’t look as sexy as bottles. Fortunately for Zonker it looks plenty good when poured. Super dark, big frothy head that slowly fades down to a thin tan cap. Overwhelming chocolate aroma when poured balances as hthe beet its for a bit with more of a ’beer’ scent. Definately easy to drink, but does have a slightly longer after taste than I might like.

Precious Metals, Brooklyn tap: pours black with a creamy, nitrous looking head. Aroma is milk chocolate, roasted malts, coffee. Taste is sweet but not too sweet. Underlying bitterness. Nice and smooth.

Aroma - barley roast,chocolate, and some light smoke. Appearance - the body is black. The head is 1/2" and bistre brown. The head slowly settles. Some suds wash. Taste - has a little smoke, roast barley, some chocolate, and a pinch of tobacco. Palate - full body, creamy texture, average carbonation, and a medium length slight roast astringency.

Draft on nitro. Black and thick with a lasting tan head. Roasty chocolate coffee aroma, some hop notes. Big flavor, medium sweet yet quite bitter. Chocolate and espresso. Thick feel, nice smooth nitro. Great one!

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.

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!

mathieuc (2958) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 14, 2015
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.
