Ported from BA.
Pretty much no head. Half a finger at most, and it goes south pretty quickly. Not quite black, but an opaque dark dark brown, and a dark khaki tan around the edges when held up to the light.
Malty, milky, and mild. There’s also a tinge of tinny scent in there too. No bitterness at all. It’s has a cold latte feeling to it.
It tastes milky, malty and surprisingly bitter, but not like hops. More like espresso, or baking chocolate. I’m not really getting any oatmeal taste in it though.
Medium body, and feels kind of awkwardly metallic. Unfortunately, the metal flavor of it is the only thing that really sticks around for long. Above average carbonation for a stout.
Reminds me of a stout I made once. It was okay. This one is too. I don’t know if I would buy it much unless it were cheap, and I’m not sure if it is since it’s from a trade. italianjohn (3254) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2011
Black pour tan head sticky lacing nice looking brew ... sweet and roasted aroma little chocolatey .... taste is sweet and roasted with a little creamy chocolately feel and some caramel malts ... not bad almost coke like but with a roasted taste and a dry sweet roasted finish JoePeesie (924) - Long Lake, Illinois, USA - SEP 15, 2011
Pours a thin black with an off white head. At 6.5% this is a very easy drinking oatmeal stout. Nice balance in the malt profile little to no hop flavor. A nice beer to be certain! kramer (6905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2011
12 oz can. Pours a black body with a small fizzy light brown head that faded to a very thin covering. The nose is really roasty with a touch of burnt malt smokiness. A little sweetness and a little coffee. The flavor has just the right amount of sweetness mixed with some roast and burnt caramel. Mouthfeel is fairly thick with a bit of clinginess on the back end. Moderate fizzy carbonation. Not the best Sweet Stout, but it’s drinkable for 12 ounces worth. nuplastikk (6453) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2011
12oz can. Opaque brown black with a rusty beige head. Sweet, luscious chocolate tones in the aroma. Kind of an odd, watery mouthfeel. Chalky coffee finish. Seems like it would go over well on nitro. The soapy cocoa bitterness is not entirely pleasant, probably could benefit from a change in the hops/hopping. Dry, not so memorable, but still drinkable.

Muddy dark brown pour with a thin tan head. Aroma is roasty, chocolate and burnt toast. Thin bodied. Very roasty on the verge of being smokey. cheap (6087) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2011
My can is black with a name of Wild Onion Brewing Jack Stout. Also, it says 6% not 6.5% so I’m not sure if this is the right place for my rating. Anyway, out of the can its pour is quite interesting. Black, with a thin tan head that fades rapidly. Smell is that of some sterile impy stouts I’ve had so it is a little alarming. However, the first taste sooths all those alrms, certainly this is a smooth black stout that comes across rather creamy and friendly. Barely any co2 but for what it does have, its enjoyable and not quite flat. Taste is smooth and easy and it almost has a tart background which makes it very interesting. Very little bitterness in this brew. Yes, rather enjoyable overall expereince, I would certainly buy this again. Paid $3 for this at the house of 1000 beers. Good example of a dark beer. I should have bought a six pack of this. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 28, 2011
Poured into a pint glass. When I opened this I was incredibly surprised to see that the beer was filled up exactly to the lid. There was absolutely no air at all in the can. Just thought I’d mention this since I bet it doesn’t happen often.
2.5 A: Black color. Just about a half finger of frothy light brown head that has less than desirable retention and no lacing.
2.5 S: Lightly roasty with just a hint of chocolate. That’s fine, but then came a strange aroma. I can only describe it as industrial in nature and somewhat like the city after it rains on a cool day.
3.0 T: Light roastiness with light chocolate and light coffee. Much a whole lot of flavor, but fortunately the "urban" smell did not manifest in the taste as well.
2.5 M: The can says this is a "full-bodied, luscious stout," which is fine, except that it isn’t. Body is somewhere between light and medium. Carbonation is fine. Just a tad bit creamy and smooth enough.
2.5 D: Nothing about this beer is impressive. It’s thoroughly mediocre with a strange nose.
Serving type: can
