On tap at the Petrol Station in Houston, TX.

A: Pours a dark brown color. Nearly black. A small tan head forms, but recedes to nothing. Light lace.
S: Not much in the nose. Musky and dank, like wet cloths. astringent, slightly acrid malts. Light roast and coffee, some chocolate.
T: Follows the nose, but the dankness is gone and not quite as astringent. More milk chocolate flavors come out. Some roast and coffee as well.
M/D: A light to medium body. Thin carbonation and is pretty watery. Not hard to drink. I will put back the pint without a problem. That is it though.

Just ho hum. A little below average at best. Not something I am going to come back to.

Fine look to this one with a strong tan head sharply crowning a dark brown brew.

Dark chocolates and subtle dark fruits (plums, grapes) to the nose. Working hard to find more.

Tastes sweet and inviting with notes of marshmallow and chocolate countered by surprising notes of vinegar and earthy hops.

Medium bodied and cream with an alcohol presence that generates just enough warmth.

Underwhelming but tasty enough to prompt more seeking of No Label brews when possible.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pours an obsidian color with a creamy but modest tan head that leaves a nice pattern of lace

Smell: Charcoal and chocolate, with undertones of lactose

Taste: Ashy chocolate, up front, with a bitter and oddly tart character that develops in the middle; after the swallow, the lactose appears, adding a bit of cream and marshmallow

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: The tart flavor makes for a rather odd addition here; suffers from a lack of a milk chocolate character

Thanks, BeerHunter76, for the opportunity
