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.

Pours a deep black with ruby highlights. Thick (fat?) head of tan foam. Gorgeous lace.

Nose is roasty chocolate and some vanilla bean in the background. Very appealing.

Flavor is rich and chocolatey, with large amounts of bittersweet dark chocolate and a slight burnt finish. A fine stout, and one I'll gladly revisit.

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.

12 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a half inch light tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like bittersweet chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, cream/lactose, and a light minerally aroma. It tastes mostly just like the aroma is, like dark chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, and some minerals. For some reason this brew really reminds me of drinking an oyster stout. And since I like those, it's a good thing in this case. But even then I have no idea why I'm picking that flavor up in this brew. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's creamy and has a good amount of carbonation. I think it's a good brew, I know I won't have any problems finishing this 6-pack! $10.99 a sixer.

Poured from a bottle into my trusty Left Hand Brewing big Tulip glass. My expectations are high as the lads from Fat Head have yet to disappoint.

A - Very dark black coffee coloring, with a very rich tan head that recedes and leaves a slight lacing and a thin layer on top

S - As expected, gobs of chocolate, slight hint of vanilla and a wiff of cinnamon,

T - Strong semi-sweet chocolate on the front end, some nice toasty malts and a smooth vanilla finish.

M - Creamy, medium bodied and medium carbonation.

O - This is a very drinkable beer more subdued than I expected but very tasty, the lads did not disappoint.

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.
