Not really a stout guy, so here goes...
A - Looks black to me. The head foams up about an inch with a good pour. It's more bubbly than I expected, and doesn't retain for very long. Some light lacing on the glass.
S - Nice strength of aroma, but it tastes like burnt coffee to me. I rank a 4 based on strength of aroma and the assumption that some people like the smell.
T - Follows the nose, but a bit sweeter. As advertised, the lactose used in the brewing process produces a nice sweetness.
M - This is probably my favorite part of the beer. It's a really silky smooth texture. Very nearly full-bodied. This is a comfortable beer for sure.
O - I still can't really get past the burnt coffee flavors, but the sweetness combined with the mouthfeel must make this quite a nice treat for those who enjoy them. Purchased as part of a mix-six. No full sixer in my future.

Good beer. Imagine Guinness or Murphy's with a little sugar added and you have this beer. Personally I'm not a fan sweets. This beer's sweetness is mild but it is too sweet for my liking. If Guinness is black coffee, this is a latte. Great for those who like the texture of nitro beers without the roasted flavor.

A-The pours was definitely fun. Just throwing it out of the glass. It cascades and everything. Nice creamy, nitrogen infused head. Dark body, not much light penetration.
S-Aroma is roasty first and foremost. Milk chocolate. Coffee with cream. A pleasant, textbook stout aroma.
T-The flavor is roasty again but I also get a somewhat noticeable grassy hoppiness in the back end. In between is coffee and milk chocolate or even mocha. A little chalky. Light, dark fruitiness.
M-The body is creamy but the carbonation isn't up to par. It's nearly flat and it really doesn't retain it's carbonation well.
O/D-Bought a single. Glad I didn't go for a full sixer. It was a cool beer to pour, and the flavors were pretty on point however, the carbonation was very flat. Still happy I tried this.
