3/5  rDev -18.9%

3.16/5  rDev -14.6%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance - Pours almost identical to flat Coca Cola. 1/2 finger of head disappeared almost instantly.

Smell - Chocolately malt

Taste - Roasted malt, distant hints of dark chocolate and espresso, a little watery, medium carbonation, bitter finish.

Mouthfeel - Light, with a wet finish.

Overall - Not bad for a basic stout. Would drink again. Sure, there are better options out there, but for $7.99 a sixer, it's hard to go wrong with this one from time to time.
