look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25
Poured into a pint glass. This one pours a dark cola brown with two fingers of light tan head.
Hints of milk chocolate and charcoal on the aroma. Seems a bit boring but not bad. Dark roasted malts in the pallet with a bit of a sweet finish. Hints of coffee and some cocoa.
The most is medium with sharp carbonation. Overall not bad, nothing special though.
Serving type: can

Can poured into a tulip glass, special thanks to ChrisL24481
Appearance: Dark , nice thick head that left nice lacing on the glass. Looks like a great stout
Aroma: I got lots of chocolate and cream. Lots of dark malts. Maybe some vanilla and possible spice?
Taste: Body tastes of chocolate and roasted malts. Maybe some coffee/nutty/earthy flavor. I didn't get much hops like others. Tastes like it should be a stronger beer. Last gulp seemed to have a bit more alcohol punch to it
Mouthfeel: medium to full body. Pleasant creamy feel but not overwhelmingly creamy.
Overall: Aptly named dark stout. It has the strong chocolate and malt flavors of some big beers but without the high ABV. Got this in a trade so I'm not sure about the cost but I could easily drink more of this in one sitting. Pleasantly surprised with this one. Complexity you don't expect from a canned beer and very drinkable. Maybe my scores for this are a bit high due to the heavy stouts I've been tasting lately but I really liked this.
