Great look and smell but that is slightly lacking and not enough body.

Great stout!

Thin black pour with dark tan head;fruit and chocolate whispers; thin mouthfeel/lite tongue coating;coffee bean and thin malt start; light and easy to drink; I like how the coffee flavor is just barely there; chocolate malt and a little hop bitterness round out the finish; a very drinkable lite stout.

Industry standard brown bottle, from a Make-Your-Own 6 pack, that I brought back from Carolina.
The beer pours black in color, with a thin tan head. Foam slowly faded down and left spider web pattern of lace.
Smell was very light, some roasted malt, maybe chocolate.
The taste was similar to the smell, quite light toasted grains, minor chocolate or cocoa, but really struggled to find any coffee or mocha flavors. Bitter, but astringent rather than a cold coffee bitterness.
Medium bodied, moderate amount of carbonation, dry finish.
The beer is easy to drink, which in this case is kind of a negative. I wanted more bold and strong flavors, and a thick fuller mouth feel. An OK stout, but for me didn't live up to a mocha stout.

Lighter side for a stout. Nice session able, well rounded.

Nice solid stout. Slight hint of coffee but it isn't overwhelming.

A purchase from a trip to Tennessee last July, bottled 4/4/14, so this has over eight months age on it.

a; Opaque black with a glimmer of clear ruby at the bottom, inch thick tan head receded slowly to thick surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Black coffee.

t: Primarily smoky malt up front with a light hop bite. Sweet finish. Later some dark chocolate and black coffee emerges.

m: Light to medium, perhaps lighter than expected for a stout. Good carbonation tingle.

o; Not getting an awful lot of "mocha," but a good if lightish easy drinking stout. I'd tend to call this a porter based on mouthfeel and ABV.

Tasted off flavors. Might not have been stored properly.
