12oz can poured into my sniffer
A-Dark with very faint head
S-Maybe some roasted malt with chocolate. Not much else.
T-Getting faint chocolate and some coffee. About it. Got a nice buzz quickly from just one can.
M-low carbonation, heavy body
O-The can didn't provide a date. Not getting much in the flavor department that other people have described. To me this beer was just 'meh'. If I'm in the mood for a stout this won't be my first choice.

Purchased at Champagne's in Warren MI for $14.00 for a 4pk. Served at 12deg C for the first half the can in a tulip

A- Unbelievable. This thing is like a friggin black hole. I went to a bright light and not a lick of penetration even at the edge of glass to light bulb. Amazingly dark. Nice dark head that looks chocolaty brown and a touch red.

S- Excellent. Super roasted and chocolaty good.

T- Excellent. Super nice burnt nutty chocolate flavours. Enjoyable to the max. Nice hop bite. A touch hot

M- A bit canny. Yuk. Other than that pretty good. I touch chalky afterwards.

O- Very good. Happy I bought them. Will buy again if I get a chance, they are worth it.

Food Pairing

This fantastic stout went well with...... Braised Beef Short Ribs in a lovely tomato sauce.

Enjoy
