12oz can, date stamped 31JAN18. Near black pour with a light brown head that fizzles out rather quickly. Earthy chocolate and roast with a hint of coffee for aroma. Nice meld of flavors with notes of dark chocolate, coffee, roasted barley, and earthy hops. Medium body, ample carbonation, finishing smooth, balanced, and dry. Nice Irish Stout.

From a can into a tulip glass. (I've also had this on tap from the 96th street tap room)

Pour is opaque and very dark. Two fingers of thick khaki foam form of top of the beer. foam lingered throughout leaving nice lace on the glass.

Smell is roasted nuts with chocolate and maybe some caramel.

Taste follows the smell well. Lots of roasted malt flavors to go with the coffee, bitter dark chocolate, and toffee. Not as dry as I initially thought this was going to be. Maybe even a hit of smoke and vanilla. Good complexity.

Feel is light to medium. Beer is very smooth with just the right amount of carbonation. Does dry a bit but not as much as others in the same style I've tried.

Taster from a can. Topical dry stout. Nothing remarkable, but nothing off putting. The style isn't my wheelhouse but it was perfectly acceptable. Grab this over a Guinness if the two are on the same tap list.

Appearance: A bit of a bubble show produces two fingers of beige colored foam capping the slightly translucent coffee colored liquid; russet highlights around the edge; a few squiggly shapes of foam cling

Smell: Toasted pumpernickel, charcoal and nut skins

Taste: Tart fruit (artificial grape) flavors dominate the front, with nut skin acridity building; underneath, there is the toasted bread and charcoal aspect from the aroma; the finish is dry, but the fruit tones still linger

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: The can is less than three months old and has been kept in the fridge so I am not sure why I am getting the tart grape flavor but I am pretty sure this is not what the brewer intended

Thanks, darktronica, for the opportunity

Very good head retention here. Dark appearance. Aroma of dark, chocolate malts. Flavors of dark malts. Like a steeping of dark grains. Nice mouthfeel. Good amount of carb. Overall. Nice drinkable stout.

Good dry stout. Refreshing. Here goes:

A: Black with a slight red hue. Pours a massive head that lingers. Also leaves some lacing.

S: Roasted coffee and nuts. Very bitter dark chocolate. I like it.

T: Not as robust as the smell indicated, but still good. Follows the nose. Nuts, dark chocolate and a ton of coffee.

F: Very light - just OK.

O: Good beer.

16oz tall boy can, sample from the brewery.

Towering head, nearly pitch black liquid. Bready nose with hints of charcoal and unsweetened chocolate. Smooth with a subtle sweetness, just enough carbonation to keep it going. Mild roasted grain flavors throughout, balanced and very easy to knock back. I'd easily pick this over the main stream of the style.
