16 oz can. Thanks b. Pours a medium brownish black. Loose tan head. Big coffeeish nose. Kind of a sweetish ground coffee note. Chocolate there as well. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Chocolate, coffee, and brown bread notes on the midpalate. Longish coffee finish.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
16oz can. Pours dark brown with a small off white head that quickly diminishes to a thin film that leaves a little lacing.
The aroma is roasted malts and grains with some sweet chocolate and some ash.
The flavor is sweet grainy roasted malts with a little lactic chocolate. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and a little watery.
Overall, not a great stout.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
It pours medium brown with a thin, fizzy foam. Roasty, meaty, more unpleasant than pleasant aroma. It’s thin, fizzy mouthfeel really ruins this beer for me. The chocolatey, roasted barley flavor is pretty damn good but alas, it cannot salvage this quite forgetable example of a sweet stout.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(can) Pours a dark brownish black with a very scant tan head. Aroma has coconut, roasted malt, chocolate, and cookie dough. Basically smells like a macaroon. Flavor has plenty of dark chocolate, roasted malt, and toasted nuts and coconut. Long and lingering sweet lightly roasted finish. Mouthfeel is regrettably thin and the carbonation is somewhat high which detracts a bit from the experience. Overall a simple, yet well executed beer that would serve as a great session beer.

Black Hills Beer Fest - Dark brown pour with a finger of creamy tan head. Aroma is roasty with light cocoa notes. Tastes sweet and smooth, it has the creamy milk stout kinda thing going on, but not too much lacto... More focus on the roast, espresso, chocolate, and light bitters. Good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Waldo pizza. Nice dark brown color with a foamy brown head. Nice sweet aroma that reminds me of a frothy, mocha, coffee drink. Silky mouthfeel but a little thin. Flavor is nice but muted until the end. Nice but could be tweaked some.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at stubs. Dark with some red highlights, no head but decent lacing. Nose is mostly smoke, with some wood, some toffee malt notes. Taste is meh...some light smoke on the end, some odd fruit in the middle, a bit of dark malt throughout. Much too watery. Not a great beer.

Pours a dark brown color with a generous, frothy brown head. Aroma is dominanted by strong chocolate and coffee tones. The first taste reinforces what the aroma suggests, with the addition of toffee and slight caramel flavors. Finishes clean, which helps give it a very drinkable quality.
