Pours black with small head, nice creamy palate if perhaps a little light. Very good stout base with slight bitter earthy hint to aftertaste

this is my favorite session stout!
i just discovered the six packs of cans of this stuff at yankee spirits in South Attleboro, Ma, and i was very pleasantly surprised when i drank it.
very dark, nice and foamy.....thick (but not too thick), sweet, malty, chocolate/coffee/caramel aromas, cocoa and coffee flavor, high malt, low hop....as far as i’m concerned, there has never been a better "session strength" sweet stout! md311 (13) - New York, USA - JUN 9, 2016
My go-to summertime stout. Light bodies but super roasty and chocolatey, mega crushable all year round. shanoknowsfood (104) - Hawaii, USA - JUN 29, 2016
Can @ The Butcher Block. Not sure why the low rating, i’m very picky about my beer, and this was delicious! Not the richest but it was heavy on the malty, dark chocolate & roast flavors. I thoroughly enjoyed it. VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 5, 2012
12 oz can. Pours a nice black with a thin white head. Smells of chocolate. Taste is very sweet milk chocolate, cocoa. Body is average, carbonation is average too. Very simple, yet very enjoyable beer. Can’t understand why its rating is so low.

Appearance: Black body throughout with a creamy brown head, average retention but dissolves into a light coating with a thick creamy ring.
Aroma: Sweet cocoa with roasted malts are strong on the first smell, but a light smoky aroma appears giving a light smoked meats aroma. Great aroma.
Taste: The taste isn’t as strong as the flavor but roasted malts come in on the mid-taste after a bland intro, which then hints at cocoa and a light smoky flavor on the finish. This has a nice amount of flavor, especially for the ABV and has nice complexity. I really enjoy this.
Palate: Light to medium bodied, with medium amounts of carbonation.
Overall: This is a hell of a value and it really surprised me. I will be buying a case of this for the rest of winter as my go-to. I highly recommend this and I would love to try this with some smoked ribs or a hamburger.
12 oz can purchased at the brewery in Garrattsville, NY. Pours to a deep brown, to black color, with a soapy white head that fades, and a good carbonation. The nose is very inviting on this beer, with good aromas of dark chocolate, coffee, and light roast. The palate is soft, with good dark chocolate, dark malt, and coffee flavor. This beer finishes with more good chocolate and coffee flavors up front, then ends with a mild hop bitterness that lingers. Another well done, flavorful, yet very drinkable beer. A good beer to have a session with, and a good beer to match with a number of dishes, from bbq to deserts.
