Pours jet black with a small light tan head. In the aroma, a small roast and chocolate. In the taste, lots of chocolate up front, with a small spice underneath. A small spice like bite and a medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with and dry spice of cinnamon and all spice in the aftertaste. Quite nice, just the wrong time of year for me.

Had this on 2014-03-03 in Columbia, PA

A - Opaque dark brown with a 3-finger dark tan head and nice lacing.

S - Chocolate, coffee, malted milk, roasted grain. Very nice.

T - Milk and dark chocolate, char, light coffee, toffee and curdled cream, which adds a milk sugar and tart flavor. Finishes pretty clean with lingering roasted and hop bitterness.

M - Light-medium body and carbonation. Creamy but on the thinner side; more like a Great Lakes Edmund Fitzgerald than a Founder's Porter.

O - Another good brew from Fat Head's.

Pours a nice black, solid, with a 2 finger of dark tan head. Th aroma isn't too pungent, but there's some soft chocolate and vanilla notes, with roast and a light fruit note. Taste shines so much more with a rich dark chocolate, earthy vanilla, roast, light coffee, and sweet nuttiness. Mouthfeel is a bit prickly with a somewhat elevated carbonation level and a upper medium body. A little up in down, but the high points are high and its enjoyable in the end.

A: Very dark brown. Mostly opaque, so appears black in the glass. Forms a modest, light tan colored head, that reduces to a patchy surface coating. Leaves some moderate lacing on the way down.

S: Not overly aromatic and what is there isn't all that great: cola, acidic coffee, and cocoa.

T: Ah, the taste is much better. Moderately sweet with a nice lusciousness. Chocolate, cola, and vanilla along with some roasted malts and a touch of coffee. Vanilla sweetness on the back end.

M: Again, a very respectable mouthfeel for a stout. Full bodied and voluptuous with a pleasant roundness in the mouth. Moderate sweetness. Slight cocoa chalkiness. Mild bitterness.

O: A nice beer. Aroma doesn't do it justice, and while the flavors are quite nice, the mouthfeel on this beer really help its finer qualities display themselves.

Cute label. Solid black color with about 3/4" of tan head. The foam laces a little bit.

Dark chocolate and berries and plum in the nose. Soft maltiness with a hearty roast. Yeast smells like this stout has a Belgian flair with that fruitiness. Not picking much, if any, vanilla.

No lactose present, rather mostly berried and chocolaty in flavor. Vanilla appears in the background and grows in the finish. Bitterness is a little bigger than I was expecting, but it keeps the drinkability high and worrying about too much sweetness forgettable. The roast is more showy, too. Good flavors, not overdone.

Full and creamy, but the aggressor is a vibrant carbonation that scuffs across the tongue. Hardly a trace of booze. Well-balanced.

Delicious simple stout. Would totally recommend this to many. It's quiet for the label description, but it's a complete beer for flavor, feel, and aroma.
