look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Date on can partially gone: ?/01/14.

The head I got was a bit over a half finger, and fizzed away on me in seconds. The body is a deep cola color with lacing not quite clinging to the glass.

I smell roasty malt and smoke.

Up front you get sweet molasses and malt, with a smokiness running the transition into a light hop flavor with grain.

Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied. Leaves a thin coating near the back of the tongue and finishes slightly dry.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from can into 4oz sampler mug at World Expo of Beer in Frankenmuth, Michigan.

Appearance: A dark brown, basically black. Not much of a head, and patchy lacing.

Smell: Dark malts with maybe some hints of chocolate and coffee giving some character.

Taste: See: Smell. Tastes almost like a brown ale... the only reason I could see why it's not is because of the color, for one thing, and that there's a bit more of a stout character to this one. I actually really enjoy it... really just drinks like a brown ale mixed with a stout, to me. That's not a bad thing. Very drinkable, and a low ABV.

I actually really like this beer. Tasty. Drinkable. It's not a super complex beer by any means, but it's a great option to have, especially coming out of a can.
