Opaque black body with an off white head that quickly dissipates into a thin ring around the glass. The smell is of roast and coffee. Background bitter chocolate and faint sweetness. The taste is like how it smells. Light roast, coffee, background bitter chocolate, and sweetness. The sweetness is dominant. This stout is smooth all-around and the mouthfeel is medium, carbonation is medium-light, and everything blends well together. With this amount of roast, I would expect a bitter aftertaste.

This is a solid stout.

16oz can. Received in a trade. No dating on can so unsure of the age. The bottom of the can is stamped with "RUM".

A: A nice black, thick pour giving me a good expectation for this beer. No noticeable head even with an aggressive pour gives me a little bit of concern.

S: Very surprising. Some dark chocolate but mostly dark fruits and sweetness. No smokiness, roastiness, or coffee evident which is a little surprising for an almost 9% stout.

T: Wow, not what I expected from a stout at all. Very sweet. Get a little bit of chocolate but it is getting drowned out by the sweetness. It's just too much - heavy, sticky, and buttery all at once. I enjoy a nice sweet milk stout, but this is just too much sweetness. Absolutely do not get any of the roast or hop bitterness that other reviews speak of.

M: Full body and thick. Definitely the high point for this beer.

O: I received this beer in a trade so I have no idea of the age on it. The can states that this beer should not be aged, so I highly suspect that I got an old can since I got none of the hop bitterness and roast that other reviews talk about. If my assumption are correct and I got an old can, I highly suggest to others to heed the directions on the can and do not age this beer. It needs the hop bitterness to offset the overly sweet taste that I got from my can.
