I'm going from memory here. Mack Daddy is a very dark brew, nearly black, with a decent head.

I picked up chocolate of course, and some roasty malts and expected. The first sip is heavenly liquid chocolate...and then it gets better. Pleasantly bittersweet chocolate with an easy soft bitter finish. This stuff is liquid desert for beer lovers. Very smooth and velvety in your mouth. Mmmm, mmmm, mmmm.

Had on tap at the brewery.

A: Pours almost black with a quarter of tan head.

S: Rich dark chocolate aroma with with a hint of caramel, coffee and roasted malt.

T: Strong complex semi bitter chocolate upfront followed by a hint of burnt coffee. Not much bitterness from anything in the finish.

M: Lightly thick body with good carbonation.

O: A very good starter for to enter into stouts.

Listed at 6.2% on the table tent.

Dark brown color with 1/2 fingers of dark tan head. Not much in the way of retention or lace.

Rich chocolate, coffee-laced nose. Nice roast malt tones there, too.

Getting chocolate and black patent malt up front. Roast chimes in later in the glass. Lighter taste of dark roast coffee and Belgian chocolate. Nice bitters in the finish.

Medium cream feel, not quite up to the flavors. Very smooth.

Definitely would get this again.

So I tried this at a festival and had to try it again at the source to vertify my opinion...opinion verified.

This beer pours a beautiful jet-black with a huge tan head that stays for the duration of the party.

The smell and taste...the most flavorful non-imperial stout that I have ever had, amazing. The chocolate is there, the roasted grains, the dry-ish finish...amazing.

The mouthfeel is creamy and smoother than David

The drink..I could drink the crap out of this, excelllent beer. Excellent beer. Excellent Beer.

Haven't really had the chances to try too much from up here, so I jumped at the chance to go after this one.
One of the best pours I have seen in a while hands down. Rich and dark with a huge towering head of tan that just would not quite. Cascading down it lands with a wonderful finesse and leaves this thick coating of lace all up and down the glass. Really just a site to behold. Aroma was full of chocolate, hints of molasses and other sweet notes. Needed some time to open up as it was not terribly pronounced at first, but once it did become very full and sweet. Light hints of milk and sugar playing around in there as well, not bitter at all. Smooth, very even flavor and very rich. Lots of milk chocolate and rich sweet notes just towering over you at times. Creamy and full, very big body on this one for sure as it thoroughly coated the mouth and almost had a dessert like feel to it. So wonderful. Easy to sip on and even on a late summer day this one was no trouble outside.
A very solid stout here and I really was not looking for it. A very nice addition to my day and very rich. They have done a very good job with this one!

This beer came out a very thick, jet black with a thin tan head on top. This stuck around for a bit and left in it's wake some nice sticky lace rings on the glass. Smells very roasty and full of chocolate. The mouth was creamy and smooth and just coated the mouth like velvet. The flavor is very chocolate-forward. Big dark roasty presence that finishes bittersweet and filling. This is a very well-done stout, and at the low ABV level, this is plenty drinkable. Recommend.

Appearance: Deep mahogany, near black hue under a short, light tan head with okay lacing.

Smell: Roasted coffee and chocolate malts, very slight hops.

Taste: Roasted coffee and chocolate, with maybe a hint of caramel malt and a berry-like tartness. The hops was very subtle, and the alcohol didn't show up very much at all.

Mouthfeel: Round, balanced feel, with low carbonation. Felt like a solid stout.

Drinkability: This was pretty much a standard American stout. Paired well with the burger. This is a stout that you could drink about 3 or 4 of in one night and be okay. Not amazing, but a solid, dependable offering.
