Can brought by and shared with ck1, thanks bro! Pours dark brown with super foamy browinsh head. ck1 says bad pour. Aroma has chocolate, caramel and lactose notes. Taste is of milk chocolate, some roasted malt and sweet caramel. A bit thin. Finishes somewhat dry and milky bittersweet. A bit more body would help. ck1 gave it a 12.5.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a black with a big foamy tan head. Aroma is a bit weaker, but it is good. More roasted than anything, with nuts, vanilla, and traces of chocolate. Chocolate is more pronounced in the taste. It is still nutty and roasty, but there is also caramel involved here. Very nutty and chocolaty aftertaste. I think many people would enjoy this, and there isn’t anything really negative to report. Not bad for a local option. But for some reason I would prefer others from this style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can and served in Guinness Impy Pint glass: Pours a deep mahogany hue with a lovely creamy head and good lace. The aroma has notes of roasted and chocolate malts, some earthy tobacco and leathery esters, oats and biscuit, grassy and herbal hop vapours with a touch of pine and citrus. The taste is a rather chocolatey with some roast and char along with an ripen fruity component. Minimal bitterness and almost no hop character. A tad sweet but still drinkable. The mouth feel is slick and medium-bodied with a slight metallic and ashy finish. All thing considered, you could do much worse outta a can than this. Would be a nice beer for a campfire.

Aroma is roasted malts and some milk-like sweetness. The flavor is coffee, roasted malts, cocoa and has a milky consistency. Definitely better in a glass than out of the can, this was a very smooth stout.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark with a foamy tan head. Mild roasted aroma. The body is actually rather rich and malty, not as dry as your usual oatmeal stout. The flavor has hints of coffee and vanilla.
