Can. Pours extremely dark, tan head. Smells a little smokey, kinda bready. Medium body, much lighter than expected. Very carbonated, kinda flavorless. Some bitterness at the end. I would say this is a miss. Pretty disappointed actually.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can; poured black with a light brown head. Aroma was roasted with a lot of earth and fruit. Some sweetness and caramel. Flavor was a bit messy. Sickly sweet at times; a bit one note. Not great.

12oz can pours with a mahogany colored body that has amber edges and supports a thin dark tan head of foam. The aroma offers up roasted malts, some earthy malts, a dash of chocolate and then faint dark fruity ester notes. The taste begins with a nice mix of sweet malts, earthy maltiness and some dark roasted malts. To midway a mild earthy wet tobacco and chocolate sensation join in and their addition fits smoothly into the overall flavor scheme. These notes proceed into the finish where a thin ribbon of sweet dark fruity esters murmurs to the surface. This all comes together very well and a good example of why I enjoy this style.

Enjoyable stout out if a can. Comparable to TenFidy but not nearly as good.

At the end of the day what surprises me here is the low ABV. Because this one is nice. Good flavor. On the sweet side. Not chewy. But good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From can: Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is sugar, chocolate, and a bit of fruitiness. Nice and smooth foreign stout. Requisite amounts of milky chocolate. More chocolate than roast... Slightly sweet, but in the right amount. Nice and balanced.
