Probably the current favorite due to availability and price. Goes down smooth with a great (although a little watery) taste.

A: Very nice. Great color. Great effects. Impressive when poured into a Guinness glass.

S: It has a little bit of an ocean or just after the rain smell. Not real good. But not unpleasant.

T: Tastes a little like the old fashion baker's German chocolate that was flaked onto roll cakes. Sweet!

M: It doesn't feel like what it looks like. It's more watery and smooth. Not much substance.

Overall: Good-to-Great. It'll remain a favorite for the foreseeable future.

Found this beer review in some of my old beer notes.

This beer pours a dark brown color with some ruby hues. There is a big creamy 2-finger off-white head resting on top. The head has incredible retention, and it leaves behind a big coating of lace on the glass. The nose is pretty light. There are some weak notes of chocolate and coffee, as well as some nuttiness. There really isn't much going on here. The taste starts off with some light roasted malts, and some faint notes of black coffee and a touch of chocolate. There is some burnt bitterness and a bit of a metallic taste. This is just a pretty weak flavor overall. This has a pretty light body, especially for a stout, and creamy carbonation. There is some bitterness and some sweetness as well. I think the creamy layer of foam on top is the only thing that saved the mouthfeel. The drinkability here isn't so good. It goes down really easy, but it is definitely lacking in the taste and smell. There just isn't much going on, and the flavors and aromas seem quite muted. I really just expect a whole lot more in a stout. This beer just really isn't worth the money. You can get a much better 6-pack of a nice craft stout for the same amount of money. I recommend going the second route.
