Enjoyed from the 12 oz can in a snifter via a friend from work----Thanks Randy!

This drinkable stout pour a dark muddy brown with a quickly dissipating head of light brown foam that subsides to a thin ring and very spotty lacing. Nose of light coffee, light chocolate, and deeply roasted malts and grains. Flavors exceed the nose with bitter coffee and a light fudge note that comes through on the middle of the taste that fades in the back to a light cream and finishes with roasted malt and coffee aftertaste. Mouth feel is a touch watery but highly sessionable with medium carbonation. A very nice brew and a first for me from this brewery.

Never seen this one around before, felt in a stouty mood so why not?

Pours between deep dark brown & black, foamy tan head goes pretty big then settles to a thin a blanket on the top. Smell dark chocolate, the usual roast notes, then more chocolate -- fairly straightforward. Taste is as announced by scents, though less bitter than expected, almost sweet stout level but not quite.

Goes down with virtually no fizz. Could be richer, but not bad.

It is what it is, a simple stout. Utilitarian sort, sessionable, good taste. Doesn't wow me, but I like it.

Poured into a Pint glass from a 12oz can, jet black but with almost no head. Searched for some aromas only to get a roasted malt tin smell, that's also the after taste after every sip...tin/metallic mixed with a little sweetness and roasted malt. Very drinkable mouthfeel with some creaminess and body, couldn't shake the metallic aftertaste on this one but would love to try this on tap. Not the first from this brand to have a metallic taste, their 1327 Pod's ESB is pretty good and with no tin. In any case I'm glad I gave it a try...and as a single in a mixed 6....all the better.

Poured brown/black from can into stein.

Nice thick brown head, hangs around for a bit with little lacing.

Light roasted scent on the nose, not much.

Some roasted maltiness, and a hint of sweetness.

Mouthfeel is a little thin for a stout in my opinion, not too bad of a thing in this case because it contributes to it's drinkability.

Overall, it's not too bad. Nothing special, but definitely a sessionable stout that's easy to drink and delivers a taste that's decent but not spectacular.
