Starts off promising, but quickly goes down hill. Too much carbonation, very thin mouth feel and lacking flavor. Far from fantastic, but definitely not undrinkable.

Pours a dark chocolate color with an aroma of coffee and some roasted malts. Flavor is coffee and roasted malts. There's a touch of bitterness from the coffee. This actually drinks pretty light and the mouthfeel is a bit thin. Overall the is a solid beer but a little lighter than you would think by looking at it.

Pours black in color with a slightly f khaki colored head. Aroma is of malts and coffee. Lots of coffee actually. It's flavor follows suit (more coffee). It is medium bodied. Good flavor, good beer, but relatively basic.

Bought a 4 pack of pint cans.

Look: very dark brown, thin tan head, light lacing
Smell: delicious coffee smell, hint of chocolate
Taste: chocolate & coffee, mildly bitter aftertaste
Feel: medium bodied & lightly carbonated. Very drinkable.

Overall: very enjoyable stout. I'll definitely be buying this again.

Dark, dense, black pour with a 2-inch, tan, and creamy, pocketed head. Poured from the 16 oz can into a straight-sided pint glass. The head settled in at 3/4 inch. Coffee, malt, and cherry in the nose. Medium light body, with very modest carbonation, and distinct coffee flavor. Light, fresh, dried tart cherry notes with a coffee backdrop as it lingers. Some Belgian lace forms. Very smooth. Much lighter than expected. The light body and low malt, makes me think of Porter more than Stout. Very drinkable and refreshing, however, I may hesitate before I pick it up again.

Light head that fades to nothing.

Coffee and roasted malt in the nose.

Taste is heavy on the coffee. This actually could pass for coffee. Not getting a lot of malt or anything else going on.

Mouthfeel thin, undercarbonated.

A decent simple stout, lacking complexity a bit though. I considered putting in the microwave. It's pretty much exactly like coffee.
