Good, but thought it was on the thin side, both in flavor and mouthfeel.

Black color with mocha head. Aroma is really roasty with dark malts, a bit of chocolate and coffee. Taste is malty, with dark chocolate and intense roastiness on the finish. Quite bitter on the aftertaste, lingers for a long time, making you want to have another sip. Heavy, smooth body with soft carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden, making the beer very drinkable. I really like this one, heavy, roasty, bitter and smooth, feels like a proper stout.

Found the last 6er and always up to try American stouts. Pours a midnight dark color with great aroma sweet malt, coffee...not thick but just right...very smooth. I enjoy stouts year round and admittedly this is a very good one...I certainly hope to find more around town.

I saw this beer at a insanely low price so had to give it a try--wise decision.
Poured this one into a Samuel Smith nonic, watching the single inch tan head simmer down to a thin and spotty skim. The body has a impenetrable uber-dark brown coloring to it that seems to swallow all light.
The nose feasts on lots of unsweetened chocolate, roasted barley, a hint of raisins but most of all booze glorious booze.
What your taste buds pick up on doesn't differ much from what your olfactory gadget picked up on except for a little barley ash on the tailend.
The mouthfeel is medium to heavy.
Overall I think this is an above average stout and why the liquor store was selling it at such a cheap price is beyond me.

Pours thick and black with very little head despite a very vigorous pour. What does show up disappears quickly, leaving a mere ring of light tan and a scattering of broken lace.
Smell is very toasty, almost burnt, malts, unsweetened chocolate, faint toffee and an ashy note (probably from the malts).
Taste is rich with heavily roasted malt, faint hops, bittersweet chocolate, vanilla, some whiskey. Obviously, with this style, time for warming almost always proves beneficial and in this case that holds true.
Pretty damned smooth with a definite linger but not to the point of being cloying. Light, almost watery, up front but it get fairly full bodied mid and finish where it ends dry. Somewhat warming and the ashyness really falls away. Put this in a barrel and I expect it'll be push 4.5.
