2.53/5  rDev -32.4%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Pours a dark almost black color with a very faint red tinge around the edges, Creamy tan head. I struggle to find any aroma. Dry very mild chocolate taste with very little bitterness. Very smooth with hardly any carbonation. Seems kind of on the bland side with not much as far as anything extraordinary. No bitterness and certainly finishes dry. I sense some sourness in the middle. Little bit of a chalky feel to it. Doesn't have anything as far as turn offs but doesn't excite the senses either.

Serving type: nitro-can

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.
