A - Dark in color, some purple hues. Very small head though and falls quickly leaving little to no lacing.
S - Smells like a porter. Roasted malts and coffee stand out most of all, with chocolate undertones.
T - Very well balanced. Chocolate is not overpowering like some chocolate stouts, but instead is an excellent supplement to the roasted malts and coffee flavors. Hops provide a good balance of undertones.
M - Good, a full feeling beer without being overly carbonated.
D - Great drinkability and would be an excellent session beer.
My first impression of this was uh oh, because the appearance really is not good and looks watered down. But after trying it this beer has a great flavor and is definitely worth a try. overall a well balanced stout and a good after dinner or session beer.

I believe I purchased this from Total Wine in McLean VA.
A really top shelf stout in appearance with a really thick, tall and creamy tan head. Retention fell off a little so that docked it a little from being a 5.
For the smell I'm picking up more coffee and burnt scents than chocolate. I'd prefer chocolate and sweet scents myself.
Taste - Well now I'm a little disappointed. Its a very thin beer, burnt flavors like the nose and a touch hoppy in the finish. I really am not tasting much chocolate at all here or anything sweet for that matter. Somewhat easy to drink though due to the watery nature of this beer.
The mouthfeel is very thin and watery. Not very thick or heavy for a stout at all.
Overall I really don't recommend this beer as aquality crafted example of the style at all. I would drink it if offered again as its not offensive in any way, but just is really lacking in many areas.
