look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Served in one of the nitro "rocket-widget" bottles.
Appearance - I poured this out into a glass, despite the instructions on the bottle to not pour it out. Pours initially tan with that "snowfall" effect while it settles. A head that reminds me of chocolate milk, and it stays on top a good while. Mostly dark brown body with an amber/ruby tinge when held to the light.
Smell - A roasty, coffee-like smell with possibly a hop hint left in there. No chocolaty smells in there, which is surprising. Smells kinda thin for a stout.
Taste - Bitter with emphasis on the coffee flavors. A wee bit of a nut flavor comes through, but nothing to write home about. Again, the flavor is kind of thin for a stout. Not bad, but not great.
Mouthfeel - Very unassuming on the tongue. Slips by without any real imposition. Almost watery/light.
Drinkability - Yeah, it is drinkable, but if you are looking for a true stout, this won't get you too revved up.
Overall - This is a let-down for a stout. If you are looking for a true, full-bodied stout/beer, pass this by and go for a non-macro version. This is a very so-so brew.

3.2/5 rDev -8%

Pours darn near opaque with only a slight hue around the edge when held to the light. The head is mocha colored creamy foam and it lasts and leaves grogeous lace. This beer looks amazing. The nose a mild bit of roasted malt, it promises something grainy and maybe a bit bitter. A light sweet chocolate in the background. Taste is where this one loses me. Weak flavors thin body. Watery and thin although soft and creamy. Weak coffee, roast that had potential but fizzled in it's lackluster approach to the palate. There's not really much alcohol in this one so it' wasn't
planning on being strong. And it's not. Earthy, hints of char light smooth and finishes slightly with a faint bitterness from roast . It had a slight imperfection in the mouthfeel as it was actually grainy at the back palate. An actual sensation of something faintly gritty.
