look: 2.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.75
12 oz. can,
A: Pours a deep mocha brown with a frothy dark brown head, fair retention, no lace.
S: Lovely sweet notes of cinnamon cookies, chocolate, lots of dark malt characteristics.
T: Chocolate and cinnamon, definite notes of molasses cookies which I like a lot. Bitter dark chocolate finish with some nice dark flavours, hint of charcoal, definite residual sugar flavour.
M: Light-bodied really, over carbonated, frothy, a bit disjointed overall.
O: This is a good stout even with the mouthfeel problem. Can for $3 or so, I like it.
Serving type: can

12oz can poured into a Chimay goblet.
A: Pitch black pour. Creamy beige head takes its time,but eventually settles to a thin cap. A delicate ring of lacing circles the glass.
S: Semi sweet dark chocolate, smoke and soot, faint whiffs of black pepper, dried chilis, and cinnamon. Not much 'pop' on the nose.
T: Smoke and soot up front. Bakers chocolate. Faint cinnamon. Flash of clove and some oily hops. The chipotle contribution is very downplayed, just the slightest hint of peppery warmth on the back end. Cola. Touch of candidate sugar fruitiness. Dry chocolatey and sooty finish with the slightest hint of chipotle heat.
M: Rather thin and light. Slight creaminess, but it lands on the watery side. Gentle scrubbing carbonation.
O: About as complex as a doorknob. Adjunct contributions are weak and uninspired, yeast character is seriously lacking, and the body is too thin and watery. A lot of bells and whistles on paper, but in the end this is an exceedingly average beer. Maui needs to go bigger and bolder all around with this one.

This beer looks great off the pour. Completely dark with a large brown head. Nose is roasted malts. Flavor brings a bit of the same with an almost fruity edge to things. Kind of like mellow blueberries, in a stout kind of way. Pleasant to drink and a nice stout. I like it.
