12 ounce can - $3.49 at Total Wine & More in Greenville, South Carolina.

Appearance: Dispensed a deep, black body with half an inch of mocha-toned foam.

Smell: Boldly chocolaty aromatics atop a blunted roasted character with touches of scorched heavy cream, candied caramels, molasses and a vein of dark fruitiness.

Taste: As with the aroma, very heavy and forward on the chocolate backed by a decided creaminess. Fairly sweet akin to melty ice cream. A little touch of dark fruitiness within. A roastiness is present but rather restrained. Warming alcohol. Lightly roasty, heavily chocolaty finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Charmingly smooth mouthfeel.

Overall: Terrifically wonderful.

Pours really dark. The head was fairly thick, but did dissipate fairly quickly. The nose is has coffee in it. The taste has coffee and chocolate competing. They work well together, and this is a solid stout. Yes, I will get it again, gladly.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Look: Pours dark brown with a slim khaki head. Slight signs of carbonation bubbling up, and also slight alcohol legs

Smell: I picked up chocolate, and slight coffee.

Taste: molasses followed by chocolate and coffee. Chocolate dominant for sure, coffee in the finish more so.

Feel: Medium bodied, well carbonated, almost reminds me of a porter. A hop bitterness kicks in on the finish, leaving a nice prickly sensation.

Overall: a nice stout with beautiful chocolate aromas, but a little to thin for me to be top tier.

Drank from a can so I probably missed a lot of the nose/taste. Terrific stout. My favorite grocery store stout. Happy I finally tried this.
