A: Pours a brown-hued black with a soft tan head.

S: Cocoa, slightly bitter coffee notes, roasted malt, maybe a hint of vanilla.

T: Some lactose-like sweetness, chocolate, sharp notes of roast, slight vanilla bean, light hop bitterness.

M: Medium-bodied with creamy carbonation.

O: Pretty tasty, but the roasted malt is a bit harsh.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

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.
