I believe I got this one from Halftime beverage.com
A - Pours a very deep brown almost pitch black with a full inch of mocha head that seems to stick around minutes after pouring. Already I am impressed.
S - Oh no I smell a touch of metallic like grain with a bit of roast and just a pinch of chocolate like malts. Not good.
T - Well it's fairly thin which makes it taste like a version of Guinness draft. The roast does play into the taste but very little if nowhere to be found chocolate malts. The metallic twang is also constant which is a bummer.
M - Thin, not very chewy or consistent with the style.

Overall it does dial back with the metallic note after it warms a bit but it's a thin very forgettable stout with mild flavors.

12oz. bottle courtesy of innuendobrewskiman63 (thanks Jeff). Served in a standard pint glass. Pours the color and clarity of cola with a thin fizzy head that effervesces and dissipates immediately off the pour. Nose is not what I expected - cherry notes dominate, followed by the merest suggestion of dark malts and maybe a hint of brown sugar. Taste - not great, tart cherries, acidic, old coffee grounds, metallic notes - it's pretty bad. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a lively, almost prickly carbonation and some astringency. Well - hopefully this is just a bad bottle, but this is one of the worst beers I've had in a while. Definitely infected if I had to guess. The first beer I've drain-poured in quite a while.
