Pours a incredibly deep brown color, a shade or two away from black with a thick, cream head that hangs around for the duration. Lacing is minimal and carbonation is hard to detect, but present.
Very welcoming although a bit boring. Sweet molasses and toffee tug at your nose hairs. Faint hint of vanilla.
A big mouthful of molasses. Dull coffee notes and bitter cocoa.
Light body borders watery, however, it's a bit chewy but incredibly smooth. Carbonation is light. Crisp, semi-dry finish.
I'm appreciate this beer... It doesn't excel in any one area but it's easy to drink, it's light, and it has character. And that's a lot more than can be said about a lot of stouts out there. Cheers.

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.
