Enjoy by 5/8/15. Really? A stout not implied to improve with age?

Pours black with brown highlights. Tan head dissipates to thin ring

Smells of coffee and bakers chocolate. A bit of plum. Maybe some ash.

First taste leans towards the dark fruit spectrum but has a bit of sweetness. Like a fruit snack flavor. Nothing exploding here but nothing off-putting either. A little bitterness detected and cancels the sweetness further thru. Not much depth.

Feel is less than medium body and pretty low carbonation. Kind of light for an RIS. A little alcohol burn.

Not too bad. The body and low carb in this doesn't hit the spot for me. Almost makes it a session stout if their is such a thing but I wouldn't really want more than one in a sitting.
