3.73/5 rDev -0.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
App - Black but you're able to see through it if you shine light, but points are made up with the amazing looking foam, light cream, absolutely beautiful.
Smell - Roast coffee, some chocolate, and vanilla. Had to smell through foam.
Taste - Subtle coffee is the first thing to come to and with a slow and enjoyable transition to chocolate while notes of chocolate attacks the tongue. Sweet malt is in the background. The finishing taste is vanilla, sweet the whole way through, balanced by hops throughout as well.
MF - Very creamy, it's great! Medium mouth-feel, not too heavy for a stout.
Drinkability- Very refreshing. I'm surprised. I didn't know a stout could be so refreshing and satisfying. This is the first daught I've ever had though and the lowest ABV for a beer. Session is written all over this one.

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.
