12 oz can poured into a dfh snifter

A: pours viscously, black with a creamy finger of chocolate head, nice retention and lacing, this looks good

S: nice dark and malty with a touch of alcohol vanilla and chocolate. Nice aroma, I wish it was a little more pungent, not as mich vanilla as i expected, but still very pleasant.

T: man, this is really tasty, dark malts give nice chocolaty notes along with dry and roasty cocoa nibs and a touch of vanilla, again I was expecting it to be a little more foreword but I think it's used very well here, very nice balance. Very faint hint of smoke... Touch of alcohol.

M: nice full mouthfeel, lush and creamy, dry overall with a bit of a bitter punch from the roasted cocoa and hops used. Also nicley drinkable.

O: this is a very nice stout, very enjoyable.... I'd reccomwns it to anyone who enjoys a good stout.

Just picked up a 6 pack of the Phantom Punch Winter Stout.

Very pleasantly surprised!

It pours a very dark brown to almost black with a dark creamy head that disappears as it settles.

A very thick tasting beer, but easily drinkable!

Not too much carbonation and a little sweet and smooth.

Overall this is a great tasting stout for a cold winter's night!

Pours a dark, dark brown with a light brown head. Plenty of lacing once the head dissipates. Smell is not too strong, but you get whiff of roasted malts, chocolate and espresso. The taste consists of dark chocolate and roasted malts. Slight metallic taste probably from the can. Medium body with some carbonation. Sticky on the lips too. A decent local stout, but I think it could be a lot better.

Poured from the can into a pint glass. Pours black with a thick deep tan head crowned by a light tan center. Head lingers and becomes quite fluffy. The chocolate aroma hits first followed by a roasty malt. Vanilla is very faint. The taste is dry roasty chocolate with a bit of an alcohol finish. A thin body that leaves you wanting to take another sip. Very nice
