I was really hoping for something more. I tried this a long time ago before I was drinking the dark beers and didn't like it then. I had another yesterday and was looking forward to it as I feel like I've come to appreciate this type of beer. Boy, was I disappointed, this beer has nothing on a Guinness, it tasted bland. It has a coffee taste to it w/ out the roasted malt hint that is so important in a beer like this. It also tasted on the flat side. The appearance is very nice though, the lacy head lasts until the bottom and then leaves a hunk of foam on the bottom of the glass. I can drink it and I don't dislike it, but clearly not a competitor of Guinness or a good stout or porter in my opinion.

3.3/5 rDev -11.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a Nitro-can into a pint glass. A nougat coloured head over a deep, dark cola body. There is lots of action beneath the surface after the intial pour. Smells of roast, burnt toast and grain. The taste is mild, with coffee and chocolate undertones mixing with the burnt toast of the nose. The mouthfeel is creamy, but seems too thin and watery for a stout. Overall, it's not too bad, but there are better options out there.

3.4/5 rDev -9.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
14.9-oz nitro-can into porter/stout glass
A - beautifully cascading bubbles settle slowly into a finger of creamy cream-colored head over a deep body with black appearance, red/orange highlights when back-lit; beautiful
S - slight malty smell, not much to it
T - roasted notes, slight coffee flavor, maybe a touch of chocolate; malty and biscuity
M - light for a stout, but creamy and smoother than smooth; low carbonation
O - It looks amazing and the smooth feel is impressive. Otherwise this one's fairly unimpressive. Not bad, but not impressive.
