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

Pours a pitch black color with a brown one-finger head into my glass. Looks about right for the style.

Aroma is full of a hint of roasted coffee and a hint of chocolate as well. Not too powerful aroma-wise.

Taste is full of cream with a slight hint of coffee/cocoa. Surprisingly silky and slightly thin in the middle.

Mouthfeel is full of lingering cream and cocoa, which stand out the most. Certainly delicious.

Not bad. It's drinkable but my only gripe is that it could have been slightly thicker.

Looks like a guiness, some head.

Spicy, not as in jalapeno, more like as in peppery.

Chocoloate. Definitely chocolate. Turns to a more mellowed out flavor towards the end. Lots'a roasted bitterness. Not crazy, but a mellowed out stout.

A lil' creamy. Not too thick for a stout. Really light actually. Not for those darker than your soul beer-lovers.

Good for a stout, but i could ask for more. A stout SHOULD NOT be drinkable. this is way too light. good for a first try in the genre, but id recommend a rasputin or goose island for the more adventurous

Pours nearly opaque with light ruby brown hilights around the edges when held toward the light. Dark stuff for a regional brewer, light tan head forms nicely and dwindles into scattered sporadic lacing. Aroma is nice, semi sweet chocolate with dark roasted malts and a touch of caramel streaking through. Herbal hops peak through in the back ground of the dark roasts. Flavor has a creamy softness about with some herbal mint tones coming through almost some charred oak and faint vanilla but a light version of these flavors, dark creamy chocolate light roasted coffee tones. A pleasant blend dark roasted malts/herbal hops/and drinkable non abrasive features. Mouthfeel is smooth, still retains a nice sturdy carbonation that isn't overdone. Medium to light bodied for a stout, but fuller than most macro offerings to be found. Drinkable, likeable damn tasty stout, that I'm glad I stumbled across the new mixed variety pack at the local Kroger.

This came in a sampler pack with 3 other types of Dundee brews. Overall, I was very pleased with this stout. The color was very true to form: dark and lovely. The head was not very tall and disappeared after a couple of minutes. The nose was malty and somewhat sweet, but not overly expressive. The taste was very good, though, and this beer stands up well next to stouts that cost a lot more money. I tasted lots of sweet malt, with a little coffee and nicely balanced hops in the background. This is an easy-drinking stout that is worth checking out.

Beige, rocky head. Recedes quickly to single layer of minute bubbles. Spotty lace.

Black patent malt aroma with a little bit of chalkiness.

A bit thin for the style (with a high level of carbonation). Pretty well balanced for a stout--lots of black patent with a touch of hop. Good aftertaste of dark chocolate and mild espresso.

The beer pours a black color with a thick frothy tan head that slowly fades to lacing. The aroma is good. It has a dry, roasted malt scent along with a slightly sweet caramel aroma. The taste is decent. It has a basic pale and roasted malt flavor. It goes down smooth with a bone dry finish. The mouthfeel is fine. It is a medium bodied beer with adequate carbonation. This is a pretty good stout. It's nothing exceptional, but it's true to style and easy drinking.

Poured into an imperial pint glass.

A: Short head retention and minimal to no lacing. Dark to copperish body with a light off white nose.

S: A nice coffee, caramel aroma. Not too strong off the glass, but a very pleasant smell.

T: Very good light bodied stout. Good for a session stout, but not creamy in the least. As the bottle says not heavy and filling at all, so I find it quite different than most stouts. Good for turning people on to the style, but not as pleasing of a stout as many heavy creamy types.

M: Groovy lingering taste, good slight spice on the finish and slight silk on the finish.

D: Good drinkability for the style, but not one that is great for a special tasting, one that is expected in a mix pack.

Good pouring beer leaves a nice head, but not much lace. The nose is full of chocolate and toffee. Not much in the middle of this beer. More carbonated than you'd expect without much flavor. The aftertaste, however, is where this beer shines. Very good burnt toffee flavor that follows through on the promise of the smell.

It's not Guinness, but it's not Amber Bock either. Just a solid porter that hits all the right bitter and sweet notes.
