Aroma is light chocolate and coffee. Dark Black color, thin white head. Thin beer. Taste is Alka-Seltzer; not very flavorful for a Stout. Missing sweetness, boldness, bitterness that you would expect Thin feel.

Disappointed.

Smell: Rich chocolate atop of malt; Malt-o-Meal

Taste: thinnish, dry roast with some chocolate

Feel: Silky, full bodied

Overall: decent

Pours a clear, deep brown, with ruby highlights, so dark as to appear black, producing a huge 3+++ fingers of mocha, moderately lasting, frothy head that leaves beautiful, clumpy webs of lacing. Aroma is dark roasted malt, Baker's cocoa, rich dark chocolate, roasted nuts & coffee with hints of molasses & a faint touch of dark fruit. Taste is overwhelmingly Hershey's chocolate syrup, followed by dark roasted malts & slight burnt notes, hints of cola & coffee with a hop bitterness appearing at mid-sip. The dry finish exhibits a slightly burnt, unsweetened cocoa & low caramel like sweetness. Aftertaste is dry, bitter chocolate, roast & a more exaggerated burnt note than in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low-moderate carbonation, chewy, creamy & smooth.

I normally would not write a review as short as this but folks should be aware that purchasing this is risky. A friend shared a bottle of this with me this weekend and it was either a terribly executed oatmeal stout or grosely infected. All sour fruit with carbonic and mineral character.
