Poured from the bottle into a glass.

Black ink hue.

Dark khaki head; a curtain of lace.

Milk chocolate nose.

Thick mouthfeel.

A mix of milk chocolate, dark chocolate & black coffee. A bold flavor that I'm enjoying.

Poured into a beer glass of some sort. Pours dark, like coffee, with a very thin, almost not noticable foam head of tan colour.

Smells like a typical stout, a little coffee, a little chocolate. Not much aroma though.

Tastes like a typical stout, though a little thin. Chocolate or coffee notes, but average, if not slightly watery compared to others.

Somewhat carbonated, but smooth none the less, feels a little thin.

Overall, unimpressed with it, and the cost of the single bottle was a bit much for what it is.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. This was highly over carbonated when I opened it, so it took a while to pour initially. I let most of the extra carbonation diffuse out by swirling in the glass. Zero notes of any infection. Pours dense pitch black color with a 2-3 finger dense and rocky dark brown head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toffee, molasses, toast, dark bread, light smoke/char, herbal, floral, and roasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roast/bready malt and moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toffee, toast, dark bread, light smoke/char, herbal, floral, and roasted earthiness. Moderate amount of herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, toast, dark bread, light smoke/char, and herbal/roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Nice robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and moderate earthy hop flavors; with a nice roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth, creamy, moderately silky, and lightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice American stout. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of dark/roast/bready malt and moderate earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

$5 (?) bottle from Three Blind Mice in Mt. Clemens, Michigan.

Appearance: A nice black color with a slight head on it. Opaque, with sediment stuck to the bottom of the bottle after pouring.

Smell: Roast. Mostly coffee. Maybe some chocolate, but very little. Relatively one-note.

Taste/feel: Surprised at the 77 rating on this site, but I guess it's because it almost just tastes like coffee. A bunch of roast, no noticeable hop presence, maybe a slight hint of chocolate? Reasonably bitter aftertaste. Body isn't too thick, so you could drink a couple of these and be fine.

Not all that interesting, but it tastes pretty nice to me. I'd try it again.
