It pours medium brown with a thin, fizzy foam. Roasty, meaty, more unpleasant than pleasant aroma. It’s thin, fizzy mouthfeel really ruins this beer for me. The chocolatey, roasted barley flavor is pretty damn good but alas, it cannot salvage this quite forgetable example of a sweet stout.
Deep black with a thin tan head. Aroma is nutty, dark chocolate and espresso. Malty sweet taste with a smooth coffee background. Creamy palate with a light bitter finish. Body is on the lower end of medium but the beer comes across as much heavier. Very nice. patandkendra (12) - Hebron, Indiana, USA - JAN 5, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2018 Aroma is faintly of oatmeal. Taste is faintly sweet with notes of oatmeal and chocolate. Palate is fairly thick. Much better than we were expecting from a can. hauxe (1019) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - DEC 15, 2017
Can. Probably from wombat23. Pours very dark brown and leaves a frothy tan head. Aroma is oatmeal, roasted grains, light hints of chocolate. Pleasant but not hugely alluring. The taste is the beers strength: oatmeal sweet, creamy, with a roasted coffee bitterness and a light tang at the end. A good complexity for a fairly light beer. The body stays lighter than average for the style, barely rising to medium. The carbonation is soft. Overall a very nice brew that might be an excellent one if it carried more heft. ads135 (5207) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - NOV 14, 2017
I’m a big fan of this beer. Tried it for the first time in 2009. Sweet, thick, and soft on the tongue. Thought this was a sweet stout at first. Rich and chocolatey, bread and aromatic. DraftTamer10 () - - NOV 10, 2017
Dark black with a rich creamy head. On the sweeter and thinner side but very drinkable. Almost a session-able stout.

B+. Pours a black color with khaki head. Full of flavor and easy beer to drink. Namespayne (67) - - SEP 16, 2017
Low carbonation with a medium up small head that disappears very soon. Vague sensation of chocolate and malt and a finish so smooth it doesn't leave me with any real sense of an interesting flavor. An average craft stout at best. At the end of the night I prefer not to finish it and leave it for morning after taking a sip or two. It's really a better beer to have for breakfast than during the evening.

12 oz can from the Hwy 2 road trip. First Kansas tick. Aroma is dark bread, coffee, cinnamon, vanilla. Pours black with a one finger beige head with great retention and some lace. Taste starts out lightly sweet, finishing with a light dry bitterness. Good.
