I saw this in the store and thought, "Why Not?" Here goes:

A: Dark black and opaque. Pours a slight head that quickly dissipates. Normal amount of lacing for a stout. Very generic.

S: Pretty good. No hops; hints of roasted malt and chocolate. Pretty simple, and not much can be attributed to this stout's smell other than dark malt.

T: Very simple, but still adequate. Dark, roasted malts coat the palate. Lots of caramel and roasted malts that impart a sweet and chocolatey taste. It's nowhere near as full-bodied and complex as many of the other stouts on the market. Overall, though, a very decent stout with lots of chocolate flavor. Nothing special, though.

M: Thick like a stout. Not as thick as many of the other stouts I've tried, but it still imparts substantial character. Good.

O: A very simple stout. It imparts the chocolate and roasted malts characteristic of most stouts. However, the lack of complexity may turn off beer aficionados that are used to thick, complex stouts that linger on the palate.

12 oz. can into a can-shaped glass.

A: Pours a deep brown with a thin khaki head, small patches of lacing remain on the glass.

S: Nice chocolate and some nuttiness are most prominent, a bit of coffee as well.

T: Some nuttiness starts on the palate and the chocolate comes through. Not overly sweet but enjoyable tastes do come through.

M: Medium bodied and smooth, easy drinking with a creamy finish and low bitterness.

O: A decent everyday stout that I'd try again. Far from the best of the style, but definitely worth a try.

A: Dark brown, but not black. Pours with a 2 1/2 finger light tan head that recedes really quickly. Leaves no lacing on the glass.

S: Slight chocolate tones. Nothing dominate in the smell. Maybe a hint of fruit.

T: The taste follows the nose - there is just not that much complexity. Slight bitter chocolate. Maybe a little smoke. Even as it warms I am not getting anything different.

M: Initial mouth feel is very smooth. Then there is a slight feel of carbonation at the back.

O: I had hoped for this to be a winner. I am always pulling for beer from my area. This is an okay brew - but not my favorite in this category.
