look: 3 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pitch black with a thin light brown head.

Smells of vanilla milk shake and roasted malt.

Strong taste of vanilla, especially as it warms. In addition to the vanilla, red raspberry up front with a lingering aftertaste of cigar smoke.

Little carbonation but very smooth.

Just enough sweetness to balance out the smokiness, without being sticky or overpowering. Doesn't assault your taste buds.

Serving type: can

1 PINT can
Served in a snifter

A - It pours black with over an inch of dark mocha head that hangs around awhile.

S - The smell is cocoa and dark chocolate.

T - The taste is dark chocolate followed by burnt popcorn. The bitter burnt flavor grows in intensity with each drink.

M - Seems thin for a stout.

O - The aroma was good. Then it started breaking down. The burnt flavor made it unpleasant by the end.
