A wonderful Stout to drink and looks the part. While not super thick, it is very satisfying to drink, even after a few. Lightly malty and chocolaty, with a distinct bitter and lightly mossy note. A crowd favorite for a reason.

Pours a wonderful tan that dissipates I to a near black from the nitrogen. It leaves a nearly unnoticeable roasted malt aroma. The texture and taste falls far short of a stout. While smooth, it is too watery. The flavor is of some chocolate malt, although, hardly noteworthy.

If you want to expose a person to an ale that isn't Miller or PBR, offer them this. If you're a beer nerd, skip this.

Usually get this in the can with the nitro widget. Definitely my favorite "light" stout. Very creamy, especially on those first few sips through the nitro foam head. Creamy, a little chocolatey, and very roasty. Extremely drinkable. That being said, this is a light, watery stout compared to any dense craft brew. People are obviously comparing this to heavy, flavorful stouts. If you're in the mood for densely flavorful, heavy stouts, don't get this. If you're in the mood for an extremely drinkable, creamy, toasty stout - get this.

Honestly not much to say. My go to beer when I go out if they don't have craft.

Draft > Can > Bottle.

I am disappointed with inconsistencies from can to can though.
