Look - Really dark brown with minimal head and no lacing. The color appears black until you hold it up to the light which reveals the true colors.

Smell - Slight coffee with a mouthwatering sweet milk chocolate aroma that got me amped to give this beer a try!

Taste - A little disappointing considering the great nose on it. Pretty mild overall taste with some coffee, milk, and cocoa.

Feel - Just slightly carbonated, but the best part of the mouthfeel is the smoothness of the brew. Very easy to drink. Practically begging you to have more.

Overall - Easy drinking, smooth stout with mild overall flavors.

Can shared by Curran.

This one pours a dark brown, almost black, with a half inch head, and a bit of lacing.

Smells really nicely of chocolate and coffee, with some light smoke and a little bit of caramel.

This is very tasty, and surprising, because it was not on my radar at all. There's a really good amount of chocolate and coffee flavors, some milk chocolate and roasted coffee, with some caramel, and the slightest hint of smoke. All the flavors meld very nicely together.

This is medium bodied, not too thick or thin, with a fairly creamy mouthfeel, and a lower level of carbonation.

This was really tasty and really well crafted.
