Another so-so impersonation of a stout mirrors the Mom’s Cookies. Any highlights are drowned in a sea of watery blandness. Save your time and money unless you want a cheap tick.
Aroma / Appearance - A black fluid base swirls limply around the glass. Thin bodied and watery the view alone inspires little confidence of a great memorable experience. Coffee and undercooked oatmeal have cheap smoky undertones like a smoking patio rinsed clean by a rain shower.
Flavor / Palate - Watery smoke and cheap coffee tease the palate with a promise of something better. If you took the bottom of the pot and added enough water to unstick it you’d have a good equivalent of this flavor profile. A half hearted release falls just short of average and isn’t worth more than two ounces at best.
Like a Guinness, but with a little funkiness. Not sure what it is. Maybe should be on nitro. outlawskies (564) - Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Julie liked this one. She gives it a 3.2. It was a dryer stout akin to a Guinness ,,,......................

Pours a dark black with a tan foam head. Has a roasty and chocolate aroma. Flavor is sweet chocolate, roasted malts, and even a little nutty taste. Towards the bottom of the pint glass there was a dirt/grass flavor that was unfortunate. Has a watery body feel. Otherwise not too bad. edgallow (4629) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 2, 2014
4 oz draft sampler pours black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and cocoa. Taste is coffee and malts GIJOE (1258) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Pours black with a creamy, tan head. Copious lacing. Nose is roasted grain with light mocha notes. Dry finish. Pretty much like Guinness. Good brew.
