look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Can poured into an Alchemist strange glass. Canned on 11/14/12.
A: Dark dark black with a good 2 inch head. No light is getting through this.
S: Good kick off burnt coffee and chocolate with the vanilla beans coming through.
T: Vanilla is strong on the backend. There is a really nice roastiness to this beer. Maybe a little cherry in there as well.
M: This is a full bodied stout without being syrupy. I like that there is a chewiness to it.
This was a pleasant surprise! I would definite be happy with a few of these on a cold evening.
On a side note, I like the packaging of the can with all of the places to take a canned beer around the rim.
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.
Serving type: can
