A: The beer is very dark red in color (black in appearance when viewed from quite some distance). It poured with a thin tan head that quickly died down, leaving some lacing on the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of dark malts are present in the nose along with hints of molasses.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and also has notes of sweetness.
M: It feels nearly medium-bodied but rather thin on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer definitely looks like a stout but seems quite thin for the style. I definitely would have enjoyed this beer more if it was fuller bodied and had more pronounced flavors in the taste.

Low-priced, undated 12 oz bottle in a snifter.
A: Deep brown, nearly black in the glass, with a modest tan head that has weak retention. Moderate lacing.

S: Pleasing aroma of dark roasted and sweet caramel malts; more of the latter than expected for a stout. Hints of molasses and milk chocolate. Smells like an amber/stout hybrid.

T: Good flavor, but sweet like a milk stout and lacking in strength. Overly mild aftertaste.

M: Smooth; light-medium body; slightly astringent and prickly despite low-medium carbonation; some dryness in the fnish.

O: Not bad, especially for the price. Although leaning to the sweet side for style, this is overall a decently balanced brew. Timid flavor and poor mouthfeel are the main weaknesses.

Picked up a six for $6.99 at Whole Foods in Yonkers, NY. You get what you pay for...

No freshness info, Pours near black, with loght shining through at the edges, darker tan head, moderate in sized, leaves a decent looking film, some minor sheeting and some light lacing.

ehh nose of just some faint dark malts

Minimal roastyness, just some dark grains, and a moderate hop finish, just about drying things out. On the sweet side throughout.

As somebody else notes, this really drinks more as a darker brown ale.

Wouldnt bother agian with this tepid and middle of the road, barely craft beer...
