A: Creamy black. Not like the black color of a double, but a little lighter. Brown chocolate head. Looks good.

S: Chocolate, malt, roast, and caramel.

T: Was afraid of this being weird and unbalanced, but it's actually pretty nice. I'm not sure what it's like out of the bottle, but it's good on tap. Chocolate, pretzel, graham cracker, roasty malt, peanuts, slight hop taste, and cream.

M: The mouth feel is awesome. Very creamy like a milk stout, and lighter side of thick.

O: This is a good beer, and I think it deserves a better score than what it has. It's balanced and sweet, creamy, and delicious.

Dark black, brown head. Nose is bready, chocolate and toasty sweet. Chocolate tast, roast, pretzel, slight toast, mild bitterness. Medium bodied, high drink ability.

It's a great stout, and you can notice the pretzel bread and it works. Delicious.

Pint poured some of this and it presented deep dark brown body with a tanned fluffy head. Solid lacing.
Smells like bread, roasted coffee and some dark chocolate and licorice too. All good stuff but somewhat muddled.
Tastes like hoppy roasted coffee, then some chocolate, and it's all backed by the pretzel bread effect that somewhat resembles a pretzel I suppose? Muddled in flavor as well though, because I'm tasting mostly coffee grinds, and somewhat sour at that (after getting past the milk stout-like choco-intro.
Feels medium to lightly carbonated and slick.
Overall it's an ok beer, but I was expecting a strong resemblance to pretzel and I didn't get that. This brewery's Daybreak, which surprisingly lived up to its claim of tasting like breakfast cereal, is what led me to picking up a can of this stout.
Maybe I'll try it again with a different impression. As of now, just ok to me.
