Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Jet-black in color, this monster smells of coffee and chocolate. The taste is much of the same, with hints of creamy toffee and roasted malt. Smooth and delicious, this medium bodied ale is all about the malts, but has enough hop bitterness to be balanced.

Deep black color with a very thick nitro beige head with eternal retention and leaving laces.
Aroma with notes of coffee, roasted malts, creamy chocolate, nutmeg and cocoa.
Very flavorful and initially indicating a good complexity. Predominant notes of creamy chocolate, licorice, nutmeg, wood, mild char and lactose, coffee, brown ale yeast and a hint of sour. Very, very dry aftertaste with a mutating and long finish.
Full thick body with nitro carbonation. Alcohol of over 8% was so hidden that is almost a crime, I hope I don't commit one going back home.
I was told to taste the non-nitro version, that it is less distracting and less thick. Great beer, but I personally like less sweet and hoppier beers.

Canned stout from our friends out East on 290 in Conroe, TX. Cracking one open emits a distinct smell of chocolate & a slight hint of coffee. It pours a very dark brown w/ a thin, cream colored head. Its real smooth w/ a creamy mouthfeel and well hidden alcohol. Tastes of caramel & chocolate w/ a slight bitterness at the end. Overall a solid brew, especially for the price. It's a great sort of "starter stout" because it’s not super thick or overpowering in flavor. I was at a pool party over the weekend & had some friends try it. They don’t generally drink craft beer but they liked it. Those of you wanting to sit down to a heavy stout during a cold winter day should choose something else. If you want a nice craft, stout that is very portable & easily shareable, go grab some of these. Especially good for those of us that need canned brews for tubing purposes & cant afford to buy enough Ten Fidy for everybody
