Just awful. Stouts and Porters are my favorite style. As others have said in their reviews there is a sharpness or bitterness to this. I cannot detect the hints of chocolate or coffee other reviewers mention. It is so bad I want some of my friends to try it simply for comparison sake...but I don't know if I want to subject them to this. I also tried their Amber Ale...which isn't bad.

Something has changed as ABV now 5.5% as has the bottle label. Color is dark. Really dark. Black enough light will not pass through. What light does go around the edge of the glass is a dark red hue. Head was tan, did not last, and left no lace. This can be poured to the top. Smell is chocolate. To me taste is chocolate with hint of coffee (expected) on the palate and hops on the tongue. Aftertaste is faint coffee and hops. Interesting combination but lingers well. Feel is smooth (again, expected). Similar to a cream ale.

Really a 1 dimensional brew in a decent way. All roasted malt and strong coffee finish. Not a beer that I would come back for a 2nd bottle.

Dark brown with head khaki / tan and a little durable. Nose: straightforward and promising of a balanced flavor profile. But that's not what I tasted. Before tasting things seemed promising if perhaps undistinguished. But on tasting the flavors seem unevenly distributed, with a mild opening, leading to a big "flat cola" aspect that hit mid-taste. After that a mild bitterness takes over, nothing extraordinary. But the flavor seemed to come in waves that weren't nicely integrated. Mouthfeel slightly creamy after holding it for a bit, but this fades fairly quickly. Overall, uneven.

Bottle stamp says LOT 1616 021

Dark brown pour, 1/4" tan head. Aroma had some chocolate malt, nothing exceptional or shitty.

Taste was lots of chocolate malt, but not exactly chocolate. Some c hop bitterness. Above average chewiness and viscosity, some dark fruit bitterness and anise seeps into the mouthfeel. Chewiness enhanced by low carbonation.

Its ok to try, not good enough to repeat.
