Had on tap at a winter beer fest. Awesomely "clean" and "fresh" taste for a stout. Goes along well with their other offerings like Blazing World. Love Modern Times!

16 oz can poured into can glass

A: softer pour but even doing that there was almost no head this beer isn't pitch black either it's close but not quite some light punches through the edges.

S: nice roasted coffee smell some light notes of licorice and chocolate

T: nice burst of coffee sweetness and some barely lingering of licorice

M: medium to full a touch thin but not crazy so

O: this is a solid beer I think i would gave been more impressed if it was called a porter instead of stout. Stout conjures thoughts of deep abyss blackness and insane viscosity. This beer has a nice taste but it's not world class at best this is worth trying and then passing on.

Minimal carb despite vigorous pour. Smell is muted with some black coffee. Mouthfeel is very thin. Seems like a black ale. Taste is old bitter coffee that tastes stale. There is no canned date. Not sure if the beer is old, but that's on the brewer to date if this beer does go bad or fade. The thinness of the body really makes it hard to call this a stout.
