3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Very malt forward, roasty aroma. I found the aroma to be very pleasant and exactly what I expected.
Appearance: Very dark, almost perfectly black. There is slight residual lacing in the glass. Small tan head, which dissipated quickly.
Taste: Excellent roasted flavors, just a touch sweet, but nowhere near too much. Finishes dry and leaves a slight lingering roasted flavor on the tongue. Very pleasant.
Palate: Good medium carbonation, medium mouth feel. Exactly what I expected.
Overall: This is not a complicated beer, but it is delicious. Exactly what I was looking for in a low ABV stout. I would definitely get this again. It’s not world class, but it’s very drinkable.
Bought on a whim at Wegman's in Henrietta, NY. A somewhat decent brew - lacks good body and the finish is a little harsh with the bitterness.

An uninspired yet just adequate enough Stout to enjoy. Wouldn’t drink more than one. Sledutah (7976) - Utah, USA - NOV 12, 2017

Pours dark brown with a small beige head, light lacing. Aroma of dark roast malts and chocolate powder. Flavor of roasted malts, coffee, caramel, ashy and chocolate, leather
Nice roasted coffee aroma with some smoke character. Pours a black in color with a light tan-colored head. Flavor carries coffee with cream and chocolate. A pretty good stout and not too high in ABV. oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 14, 2016
Pours a dark brown, with a small tan head. Aromas of faint chocolate with some roasted malts. Flavor isn’t as big as I like, a little chocolate/coffee and some mild hops.

Admittedly, I’m not a stout drinker, so when I do drink a stout, I’m doing it more for the sake of seeing if my taste has changed than I am just to pour a beer into my mouth. That said, I didn’t like this beer very much and thought it was too strong/bitter, but don’t take my word as gospel regarding anything stout-related. Don’t do it! Stop reading this!

Bottle from State Line. Deep brown pour with tan head. Roasty dark malt in the nose some molasses, cacao, same in the flavor, vanilla, oats, cacao, not very complex, somewhat watery. slowrunner77 (13205) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Malty in the chocolate malt balls kind of way, like Whoppers candy. A little thin and one dimensional, but a pleasant enough stout that goes down easy
