From the pour I could tell this was going to be a well done stout. Dark coffee brown with a soft, yet big, 3 finger brown cap. Big aromas of roasted malt, bitter chocolate, and some caramel. Flavors of bitter chocolate with hints of coffee and caramel. A nice rich medium mouthfeel that is silky and well carbonated.

This stout is classically made and comes in a six pack of 16oz cans. Just a nice offering from Lucette that I will have others try.

Pours pitch black with a nice, well-retained light brown head. Lacing sticks down the glass.

The smell is of roasted coffee and chocolate.

The taste of chocolate is balanced by roasted coffee (and bit of charcoal and chickory). a hint of licorice comes and goes. It has a roasty, dry finish.

It has a creamy, full body.

A great value here! I bought a 6-pack of pint cans for just under $10. A deliciously smooth, tasty stout! Very enjoyable!

This beer blew me away. For the price point and being sold in 16 oz six pack cans it makes it even better. Despite it's 5.2% ABV it felt thick and creamy. It tasted extremely bold with huge coffee notes and bitter chocolate. I love everything about this beer.

Pours an opaque black with almost no head and no lacing... Smells like licorice and dark malts; very pleasant. Tastes almost like a milk stout, with a smooth milky taste with hints of licorice, milk chocolate, and a little bit of earthiness. Mouth feel is very light bodied for a stout with a smooth almost non-carbonated body. Very nice stout, not overwhelming, but got more going on that just a "session" stout.

A- Pours pitch black with a nice thick tan head. Ample lace is present.

S- Big dark chocolate, coffee, cream, roastiness and some nuttiness.

T- Extremely smooth creamy chocolate reminiscent of brownies, espresso and a milk chocolate and cream finish.

M- Smooth as silk great creamy, long finish.

D- I enjoy beers on nitro that don't lose there original characteristics. This beer is a great example of that. The nitro adds a fantastic creaminess to the body.
