This beer blew me away. For the price point and being sold in 16 oz six pack cans it makes it even better. Despite it's 5.2% ABV it felt thick and creamy. It tasted extremely bold with huge coffee notes and bitter chocolate. I love everything about this beer.

On tap at Republic in Minneapolis. This beer arrives an opaque black color. The head is an inch and a half of tan foam that recedes slowly into a small firm cap that leaves nice lacing. The aroma is of graham cracker, dark and milk chocolate, and roasted malt. The roasted malt character in the aroma has a depth that reminds me of an imperial stout which is quite impressive considering this is a lighter style stout. The taste like the aroma is full of graham cracker, assorted chocolates, and roasted malt. However, the roasted malt character in the taste isn't quite as full as it is in the aroma, but it still has nice complexity. The mouthfeel is slightly lighter than medium bodied with a velvety texture, and moderate carbonation. Overall, this is one of the best stouts I've ever drank. I can see myself making this beer a staple in my refrigerator as soon as it becomes packaged for off site consumption.

A- Pours pitch black with a nice thick tan head. Ample lace is present.

S- Big dark chocolate, coffee, cream, roastiness and some nuttiness.

T- Extremely smooth creamy chocolate reminiscent of brownies, espresso and a milk chocolate and cream finish.

M- Smooth as silk great creamy, long finish.

D- I enjoy beers on nitro that don't lose there original characteristics. This beer is a great example of that. The nitro adds a fantastic creaminess to the body.

L: Pours deep dense black with a creamy 1” tan foam cap that dissipates within 1.5 minutes. S: Medium to medium high malt flavors featuring chocolate, roast and grain. Low hop aromas. T: Chocolaty, grainy with a light roast backbone. Medium to medium high malt flavors and low hop flavors. Balance to the malt. No harsh or burnt roast flavors. Achieves a nice balance between the chocolate and roast malts. F: Rich, velvety with medium full body, medium to medium low carbonation. O: A very nice, full bodied drinkable creamy tasting stout.

Great tan head, jet black. Head retains well. Aroma all toasty grains, chocolate, sweet malt. Flavor os a classic american stout. Hoppy complexity under roasted malt. Mouthful is smooth and full. Very good stout!

16oz. Can

Thanks goes out to jwc215 (Joe) for sending me this one, much appreciated.

Poured into a true pint glass, a very nice dark brown color, with some very nice carbonation, which leaves a very nice two-finger creamy tan head, with some very nice sticky lacing and a big island in the middle of the glass. The nose is malty, with a very nice chocolate/toffee/coffee note, some sweet vanilla. The taste is very nice, malty, with lots of chocolate, toffee, slight coffee, slight vanilla note, slightly sweet. Medium body with a very slight dry/bitter finish. Overall a very tasty stout, surprised me big time. Very glad to have tried this brew. Would recommend. Thanks Joe!

Pours pitch black with a nice, well-retained light brown head. Lacing sticks down the glass.

The smell is of roasted coffee and chocolate.

The taste of chocolate is balanced by roasted coffee (and bit of charcoal and chickory). a hint of licorice comes and goes. It has a roasty, dry finish.

It has a creamy, full body.

A great value here! I bought a 6-pack of pint cans for just under $10. A deliciously smooth, tasty stout! Very enjoyable!

Surprised to see this in Minnesota, but there it was, staring at me from the tap lineup at Zest in Eagan, MN. The bartender said it was a stout. OK.

Pours a Proper Stout Black. Nose is a big, creamy shot of roasted & sweet malt, poured into the nose like a wind was blowing from my feet. Very nice.

Slow Hand: I gotta admit, I didn't expect much, what with all the mediocre new breweries beginning to crowd the Minnesota beers scene. What I received on my lips was a stout with a mule's kick of roast, half a Hershey's bar, nuttiness, & warm sweet malt. The mouth on this baby is so smooth, I'd have guessed it to be an oatmeal stout from the slickness. I had to choke back my swigs so the pint would last long enough to pair up with my burger & fries. Tough to do.

This is a beautifully sculpted American Stout; in fact, I'd say this is the best one I've had, ever, that didn't resort to coffee or bourbon or other (most welcome) shenanigans. Lucette: this is wonderful. If I see your taps poking out amongst the bartenders again, I'll be paying you another visit. Excellent. Simply excellent.
