4.23/5 rDev +4.7%
black pour, dual-toned colors on the head. nice and creamy, but dissipates quickly.
sweet malts and coffee in the nose.
taste is slightly bitter with some espresso notes, stout-like qualities, but thinner than most others.
overall, it's very decent. but many low-abv stouts are. it is the higher-abv stout with exceptional quality which gains the notoriety, but this one will do. very nice!

A- Black, it's a commercial stout...
S- Roast, coffee, and chocolate.
T- Quite incredible. I took one sip and thought it was over roasted. 5 minutes later the flavors were layered with the coffee, roast, and chocolate, were at the beginning, middle,and finish, respectively.
M- Well, it isn't thick, but it's a bit chewy.The bitterness lingers.
O- Overall it's a nice American stout, fit to the style. I may be biased in my judging because I prefer the RIS. This may compete in that style as well.
