Can, poured into Founders tulip. Received in trade.
A - Medium brown pour that settles to a very dark brown color in the glass. Nice looking light khaki head. I prefer my stouts darker for sure, but it's at least a clean looking brew. Lacing is nice.
S - Pretty nice aroma. Nothing outstanding. Roasted malts, some caramel. Minor bright coffee is coming in. I'm getting a slight menthol-y note? Nice aroma.
T - Roasted malts, a bit of caramel. Not bitter or sweet, meets somewhere in the middle. Run of the mill stout flavors. Kind of reminiscent of a milk stout. Hits on the toffee note a bunch, which I personally like.
M - Knocked a few off for this category. Pretty thin in body and a bit too fizzy. For 8.25%, this could strand to be a bit thicker. Not too off-putting, but a bit below average for a stout this weight.
O - Pretty easy-going stout with no offensive qualities. I wouldn't turn one down at all, but I wouldn't seek it out. If you see it, give it a shot as a "start the night off" beer.

I was expecting jet black from the commercial description, but this is dark brown. Bad lighting at the Southern Star Brewery. Smells strongly of slightly burnt toast and tons of chocolate malts. I get some coffee roast in the smell, but I'd like a bit more. SWEET BEER. Lots of chocolate and toasty/roasty malts. More chocolate and toast than anything. Needs balance dearly. Mouthfeel is slick, sticky, yet not that full. Overall, this isn't that great. I'm splitting a can with someone, and it's hard to take down.
