Very dark brown color. Medium head. Aroma is chocolaty and fruity. A medium bodied stout. Roasted malts are chocolate and coffee. Mildly sweet. Nice cookie dough flavor. Well balanced. Nice beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet. Side note. Cool bottle cap is inscribed You Earned it.

Dark ruby red almost black with a nice creamy brown head, decent carbonation and decent lace. Big roasty coffee-ish aroma ! Roasted malts dominate; not very sweet for the style but very good. Medium-full bodied with a dry roasty finish.

Maybe more of a dry stout in my mind...

Dark brown to black with a tan head.
Aroma of roasted malt with a slight off sour note.

Taste is sweet upfront with a roasted malt flavor. Some hop balance comes in near the end to prevent the beer from being overly sweet and creating a roasty bittersweet flavor. Something just doesn't seem right with the flavor of this beer. There's an off flavor present.

Mouthfeel is thin and watery.
Drinkability: Nothing too off-standish about this one, but I just didn't find it that enjoyable of a drinking experience.

Overall, a decent beer at best and not much of a stout.

A deep garnet on the pour, the head miniscule, the color “Who Cares”, the lace “MIA”. Nose, sweet, lightly toasted grain, not much else. Start sweet, top “Cadaverous”, finish bland, dry aftertaste, Watery, a bit of hops, I guess this passes for beer, but just barely!

Almost jet black. Off-white head that faded fast. Looked delectable then I smelled and tasted it, very pedestrian. There was a light burned malt smell on the nose but nothing special. It was awfully thin and tastless across the tongue. A bit of tanginess and a something like cooker's chocolate. Drinkable enough but not for good reasons, just watery.
