Poured from a can into a tumbler pint, the beer is jet black with a frothy, light, foamy light brown head that is roughly a half an inch, and it clings to the glass like crazy. Mild chocolate tones sweeten up the toasted barley backbone and the smooth, malty presence. Flavors are light and mild, on a slick, thin body. Smokey roasted coffee and dark chocolate throughout, with a light malt sweetness that balances everything out nicely. The aftertaste is more on the coffee side, with some roast and bitter qualities. The finish is dry, and leaves the mouth quickly, with a slight astringency from all the bitter qualities. Good, solid stout.

A: Very dark. 1/2 inch brown/tan head. Head did not retain very long, and left little lacing.

S: Chocolate sweetness. No hop or alcohol is noticed

T: Sweet chocolate, with hints of the coffee and standard stout flavor.

M: More carbonated than I like in a stout. Was not as smooth as I'd like it to be for the sweetness of the beer.

Overall: The low ABV makes this a stout that I could drink multiple of in one sitting, but does not blow me away enough to purchase if I had other options.

A-pours black with a tan colored head

M-medium-full with a bit of carbonation. Very creamy body
O-Very enjoyable. Not jaw dropping but very delicious

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Aroma: Dark roasted malts. Chocolate. Soy.

Appearance: Dark brown body with a slight red hue. Tan head.

Flavor: Sweet roasted notes. Earthy hops. Cream.

Mouthfeel: Full body with a wet, smooth, and mildly bitter finish, that lingers.

Overall: Smooth and straightforward, but it is difficult to identify the flavor profile- as none of the flavors truly present themselves fully. Well balanced and drinkable, but not memorable either.
