Look: Thick black with absolute density and a short tan head with short retention and dense lacing
Smell: Butter, chocolate, cherries and espresso. Mild compared to some imperial stouts but hits the right notes. Similar to Guinness.
Taste: Buttery texture with mild carbonation and notes of chocolate, cherries, orange, and coffee.
Mouthfeel: Fairly creamy with noticable carbonation and a smooth, dry aftertaste. Par for the course
Overall: Creamy and sweet with minimal alcohol taste but the flavors and textures are mild.

Pours pitch black with a light tan head that removes itself quickly. Smell of malts and chocolate. Same goes for the taste lots of malts and chocolate. Medium body with little carbination, finishes very smooth.

Purchased 12 fl oz. bottle and poured into snifter.

L: Pours jet black with dark tan head, phone flashlight reveals deep ruby red color.

S: Nose of dark chocolate, roast grain, and black coffee.

T: Follows the nose. Sweet roast malt and chocolate on the tongue, back palate and aftertaste of bitter chocolate and black coffee.

F: Surprisingly chewy for its mild taste, moderately-heavy mouthfeel with lingering syrup feel on the tongue and palate.

Very much your bog-standard American Stout. Good but nothing outstanding.

On tap @ Angels Trumpet, Phoenix AZ.

I liked this one a lot, for a traditional Stout (no barrel treatments) this stout exploded with good flavor of chocolate and roast malt.

Bottle at home. Pitch black with a tan head. Smells of roasted malts, dark chocolate and coffee. The taste follows the same notes. Smooth-ish mouthfeel, with a chocolate bitter aftertaste.

Had it at Boothill Saloon in Amersfoort. Solid dark brown with medium head that quickly dissipates with little lacing. Butter flavor gives way to foamy bitter coffee with slight thickness in aftertaste. A nice brew that I would drink again, but not one I would seek out.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Look: It pours black with little light that gets through. It has a light dark brown head. It does have legs to it.

Smell: It has aromas of roasted malts, coffee, and dark chocolate.

Taste: It has flavors that are roasted, with coffee and some charcoal. There are also some low fruit esters.

Feel: It has a medium-high body with moderate bitterness and light alcohol warming.

Overall it is a malt driven stout with a bit of fruity esters in the background that adds complexity to the overall presentation.
