Dark brown pour from can. Nose is cocoa powder. Taste is light coffee and semi-sweet chocolate. Very smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Warm finish. Not a typical "big" stout, but a very, very good one.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark - dark. Huge head of little bubbles. Aroma is really strong of chocolate and roastiness. Taste is of chocolate and dark, almost burnt malt. The finish lasts forever and has the taste of coffee. A very good stout that the brewery should be proud of.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz can thanks to chswimmer on BA.
Pours clear dark brown in color with a small off-white head leaving foamy swirls.
Really intense mocha aroma. Maybe some molasses and anise.
Flavor is also intense and tasty. Rich milk chocolate, espresso, roast, and caramel. Just a little alcohol.
Medium-bodied with some serious coffee bitterness on the palate.
Very drinkable, and overall a very legitimate canned stout, from Texas of all places. I was surprised.

Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Medium body with flavors of sweet malt and brown sugar along with some coffee and chocolate notes. The finish is dry with a cocoa flavor and a moderately dry coffee aftertaste. Above average overall.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can courtesy of AmEricanbrew. Pours deep mahogany with a thick foamy tan head. Lots of bittersweet chocolate, coffee and vanilla in the aroma with some light roasty and caramel malt scents. Full flavor of chocolate but not sweet and a roasty bitterness that hits you in the back of the mouth. Fullish body with average carbonation and a long finish. This is a fantastic Stout, and coming in a can and being from Texas makes it even cooler. Solid beer.
