Appearance- pour a opaque black, massive expresso two finger fluffy head, sticky lacing to the glass.

Smell-sweet milk chocolate, tangy background.

Mouthful/taste/Drinkability- great body, creamy texture, massive milk chocolate flavor, tangy hop bitterness which balances the sweetness nicely. Has a nice roasty back notes but the chocolate takes the for front with this brew. Great creamy body from the oats. I would of liked to of seen maybe a little bit more of hop bit. This reminds me more of a milk stout or chocolate stout from all that chocolate flavor that takes the over the remainder of the aroma in flavor. But no complaints it a really great beer and for the price at 5.99 for a 6 pack you can't go wrong. I'll definitely buy this again, I recommend you give it a try.

Poured into a tuplip glass
Bottle date: unknown
pour date: August 18, 2014

APPEARANCE: nearly jet black.. has a deep coffee hue to it. Had a 1" thick, light tan, foamy head, but quickly settled to a thin lamina leaving uniformal lacing around wall of glass.

SMELL: molasses, teriyaki, plums

TASTE: Over-steeped coffee and plums. Reminds of the flavor I get when I dry-hit through my aromatic tobacco pipe. Sweet up front, but the bitterness quickly balances it out.

FEEL: creamy, full bodied, not too sticky.

BURP: unpleasant, choppy and foamy

A> Poured from a 12oz bottle, pours a small khaki head with decent retention. Nice dark brew, looks good.

S> Smells of mocha, chocolate, cream, and a hint of brown sugar.

T> A lot of mocha and chocolate flavors, nice creaminess, quite sweet with just a touch of sour. Really nice.

M> Feels nice in the mouth, surprisingly thick for the style. Highly drinkable.

O> Not a huge fan of TJs beers, but the Stockyard Stout is a very nice stout and a terrific value at $1 per beer.

A- mocha- like head forms two fingers high. Frothy and persistent. Body is pitch-black and completely opaque.

S- rich caramel and toffee aromas. Smells big like an imperial stout. Bitter dark chocolate notes. Hint of booze. There's also something like chicory or oak.

T- Robust flavors of caramel, dark chocolate and roasted malt. There's a big dose of vanilla present. There's a touch of assertive, piney hop flavor.

M- Smooth, mellow and creamy. Sweet throughout until a mildly bitter finish. Carbonation is lively and creates a vibrant sensation.

This is one of the best bang for your buck stouts, I must say. Great in every category.
